An independent, creative hub nestled in the heart of Plymouth’s historic Barbican area, the Barbican Theatre hosts touring shows, performances and workshops. The theatre approached Matrix needing a vibrant, fresh website design to showcase their diverse programme of events.
The Barbican Theatre offer ticketing for a wide range of events across several sites in Plymouth. When planning the structure of the new website, it was vital that it was straightforward and easy-to-use, it had to be simple for their customers to find and select relevant events. Our designers and developers worked closely with the Barbican team to incorporate their ‘Spektrix’ box office system. The team at the theatre were delighted with the integrated ‘content management system’ which allowed them to quickly and regularly update the content themselves.
We have produced a professional and practical website that works seamlessly with the existing booking and ticketing system in a slick and easily searchable site. The team at the theatre have been thrilled with the results and have received excellent feedback from their stakeholders.
“Matrix recently redesigned and upgraded Barbican Theatre's website and we are extremely pleased with the final product; both from the customer facing element and also the redesigned CMS. Throughout the redesign process the team were professional and very knowledgeable, but also incredibly friendly and easy to work with. They listened to and were very considerate of we wanted to achieve, but also offered their own thoughts and ideas - the ideal combination. They were able to work really well with our external digital box office system providers to ensure it integrated fully with the new website. We've already had some incredibly positive comments about the look and usability of the new site.”
