Madrigal Dinner Ticketing Apps

Updated: Jan 19

Still using a scroll and quill to record ticket sales to your event? There’s an easier way with the right APP. Many apps and ticket-selling platforms make purchasing seats for your madrigal dinner as simple as smithing a hairpin.

Going to Madrigal Dinner ticketing apps has several advantages. First, you save on printing costs if they buy the ticket online. Second, they’ve committed to the event once they've purchased the ticket. None of that, “Yeah, sure, we’ll try to come.” And finally, because you’re providing a meal, online sales give a pretty accurate account of the number you need to feed.

Here are just a few platforms out there.

Madrigal Dinner ticketing apps for your event.


Ludus was first started by a director who was looking for an easier way to sell tickets online. The platform is pretty easy to use and seems to be popular with theater people we have talked to. What's nice is that Ludus lets you upload your own seating chart for ticket sales. It's 5% + $0.75 / ticket, and you can pass the credit card processing fee onto the patron. It's a nice option if you just make one annual dinner yearly.

Arts People

Although not personally familiar, it is a more well-known nonprofit ticketing software. What's nice is that it has marketing and database capabilities, so you can keep track of loyal patrons and build your audience base from year to year if you are doing more events than just one madrigal dinner a year. Perhaps you can invite the same guests to your spring jazz dinner or choir concert and keep them coming back.

Also, if you are having trouble keeping track of more than ticket sales, we have some other helpful technology to help you keep up with your to-do lists. Obviously, there's a lot more to do for hosting a Medieval or Jazz Dinner than ticket sales, and we want to make sure you can accomplish it all successfully!


Made specifically for schools, theaters, dance studios, etc., it's supposed to have low transaction fees and is very user-friendly. It also has the ability to scan tickets at the door and sell last-minute tickets like a box office experience.

Eventbrite (Honorable Mention)

Many people have heard of and used this one. It's pretty user-friendly, goes great with social media, and is easy to market online. However, the fee per ticket and the credit card processing fee have recently increased, making it a little pricier to use.

So, you no longer have to depend on servants and wax-sealed scrolls for your big dinner. Do a quick Google search and let the 21st century make your night a little less medieval.
