Interactive tools and transactions

Our boxoffice payment path is built and hosted through third party software and ‘skinned’ to look like our website. An example of this is the ‘Seating Plan’ and ‘Ticket Delivery Options’ in the iFrame Spektrix System. It’s not possible to use keyboard navigation to select seats on the seating plan and to select your ticket delivery options.
