About your event listing
Improve the digital and print presence of your event with The List
We are one of the largest dedicated arts and entertainments site in the UK with over 30,000 events and over 1,100,000 unique monthly users.
We distribute listings to a range of organisations including Scotrail, STV, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, Inspiring Edinburgh and a number of newspapers, giving your listing a great deal of extra reach, without any extra effort on your part.
- Event listings are completely free.
- Provide your event information as soon as dates are agreed. The earlier you provide the listing, the more people will read it (including The List’s editorial teams). You can send us information before your public programme/event launch date and ask us to embargo it if necessary.
- You can enhance an existing event listing as more information becomes available. Longer event descriptions, relevant images, videos and web and social media links will all improve your event’s search engine ranking.
- We send potential audiences direct to the relevant box office to buy tickets, where event-specific links are available.
Submitting your event
If you have an event that you wish to see listed on our site, the first step is to make sure it isn’t there already, by searching for it on our site. Even if you have not previously contacted us about it, our research team could have picked up the information elsewhere, so please do check. If it’s not already listed, you can set about submitting your event.
This is done by using our new listing form at list.co.uk/submit. This form is designed for event organisers who are running anything from a single event up to about five events and takes you through the process of adding as many details as possible about your event, including times and dates, prices, contact details, and information about the type of event.
If you have more than a handful of events, we would suggest using one of the following options: - email us your listings in a word document, or as a pdf brochure; - email us a spreadsheet of all your events (get in touch if you require a template or help with what information to include); - talk to us about supplying your listings in an xml format. For any assistance, contact Research on firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 131 550 3050.
Enhancing your event
You can add extra information to any existing event listing by clicking on the ‘Update this event’ link:
This may be as further details (for example more detailed ticket information, a contact email address, or extra names added to a bill) become available, or it may be that you wish to correct an error in a listing, or inform us about a change to dates or times. You can also add relevant tags to make your event more visible to interested audiences. Or you can make your event much more interesting to readers and search engines alike by adding an image, videos or links to relevant websites and social media.
Better listings will make your events stand out from the crowd. Better tagging means more people will find them when searching on our site. Better event descriptions lead to higher rankings on search engines like Google. All of this means that list.co.uk will help your event reach more of the right people, and ultimately sell more tickets.
