Something for everyone

Barclaycard gives all its customers easy access to tickets for must-see shows, pre-sales, exclusive competitions, and money-can’t-buy experiences. No matter what you’re into, you’ll find something to tempt you.

We also offer Fee Free Friday, where we pay the admin fees for all ticket purchases made on a Friday.

A better experience

At the event, Barclaycard technology helps you spend less time queuing and more time enjoying yourself. Contactless payments mean you don’t have to carry cash or fiddle with your PIN number, and they make the queues quicker for everyone. We also deploy bPay bands at special events, so you can just wave and pay with a device you wear on your wrist.

We work with the best partners, including AEG Live, NEC Group, The Ticket Factory, Barclaycard Arena and Genting Arena – so our customers get access to the best events and venues.

From the venue to the ticket to the show itself, it all adds up to a better time with Barclaycard. Find out more at barclaycard.co.uk/benefits

Inside Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena

In 2014, Birmingham’s flagship entertainment venue reopened with a new look and a new name. Following a £26m refurbishment, the new Barclaycard Arena is a world-class home for live music and entertainment, and provides a best-in-class experience for Barclaycard customers and everyone who passes through its doors.

Here, Phil Mead, MD of arena owner NEC Arenas, talks about the project and what the new Barclaycard Arena will mean for Birmingham.
