OTL (aka On the List) supports the London arts and entertainment community

Seat Fillers Throughout London

OTL introduces London area members to all kinds of fun shows, events, and opportunities. Seat Fillers get to treat guests and get out of the house more without the worry of individual ticket prices. While those free tickets are great, it's also just fun to see what pops up!

London area event promoters and marketing specialists have a free and private way to fill seats or attract new patrons. Plays are musicals are offered more than anything. However, OTL isn't limited to traditional shows! Comedy, music, virtual events, fairs and festivals, conferences, movies, escape rooms, golf, classes, anything goes!

How Local Seat Filling Works

Add your name to the OTL Seat Fillers queue

When a spot opens in your city, you'll receive an email with a registration page link depending on whether you want a 2 or 4-seat membership

You'll register, setting up a username and password for the private members-only area

When a show pops up that you want to attend, make a reservation in the member area

Pick up your complimentary tickets at the Box Office right before the show

You and your guest(s) are seated together

Repeat for other shows you want to attend (but please understand that, as a seat fillers club, events won't always be available)

Thanks for having such a great service!  I have experienced so many cool events and none of which I would have thought to go to without my membership.  You have successfully removed me from my seat at home and placed me in a considerably more entertaining seat!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a seat filler in London?

What's the difference between an awards-show seat filler and a London seat filler?

They've got an exciting mission, but seat fillers for award shows like the BAFTAs or Academy Awards are there to do a job. They temporarily fill empty seats for celebrities. OTL Seat Fillers might not be rubbing elbows with celebs, but they're there to enjoy the show. They receive pairs of free tickets by private invitation from venues throughout London. And they're treated just like every other audience member.

What types of shows do OTL seat fillers in London attend?

Theatre is number one on the list. However, OTL seat fillers are invited to a wide variety of community events. In addition to plays, musicals, comedy shows, and music events, they've attended sporting events, classes, wine tastings, escape rooms, movies and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do seat fillers in London pay for tickets?

The answer is £0. OTL seat fillers never pay for any tickets. Instead, London seat filler members pay less than £5 a month for a two-seat all-inclusive membership.

What are the benefits of seat filling in London?

OTL London seat fillers belong to the most entertaining club around. Not only do they receive complimentary tickets to fun things to do, but they get to treat their family and friends, too. While the free admission is the biggest benefit, seat fillers love being introduced to new shows and events that they might not have attended (or even heard of) without being a local seat filler. Plus, it's exciting to see what can pop up at any time.

Why do representatives from London area shows, events, and activities use local seat fillers?

Local seat-filling is an effective event partnership marketing tool. Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers is a free, private, and easy way to fill seats. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They buy food, beverages, and merchandise, bring guests above and beyond their seat-filling privileges, and tend to return to venues they love (even without comp tickets!). Additionally, inviting London seat fillers is a great way to build a marketing list for future events.

How do London event promoters and marketers invite seat fillers?

New partners simply fill out an online event submission form to provide the basics of the upcoming show or event. After a new partner submits a form, OTL follows up to confirm the details. The show is then posted in the private members-only area, and a reservation list is compiled and sent to the venue. Seat fillers pick up tickets at the will-call window or other designated location. It's highly effective and convenient partnership marketing at its best!
