FAQ on late listing

Q. Why won't the calendar allow me to select a date less than 7 days ahead, and why is your guidance that events less than 7 days ahead probably wont be processed?

A. The List’s core listing service, for which there is no charge, relies on our ability to publish and distribute the listings data to attract an audience. Each day of publication helps towards this result. Over all events on list.co.uk, on a year round basis, we list a performance around 120 days in advance on average. The further in advance the better. You will see greater audiences by listing further in advance and our rules are placed to encourage promoters to spend the time submitting information early.

Q. Are there exceptions to the 7 day rule?

A. Yes. If your event starts less than 7 days ahead but has multiple performances stretching out into the future we will list it. It is not a hard limit but if the first performance is less than 7 but the last one is at least 40 days away, we will complete the listing process.

Q. I understand the 7 day limit, but I really need some help to get word out about the event. Can you help?

A. Yes. But you will have to explore our paid promotional services which we have always offered. We have a tightly defined package specifically for ‘Late Listings’ that we can implement in less than 24 hours priced at £200.
