The company was founded in 1992 with just one London venue (the Duke of York's Theatre). Since then we've achieved remarkable success from our integrated model of simultaneously managing theatres, providing ticketing services and creating productions. This core business model is supported by a range of shared services from I.T. and H.R. to Food & Beverage and Finance.
Today ATG operates 50 venues in the U.K., U.S. and Germany. Significant growth has been achieved through acquisition of other venue groups; we acquired 16 venues from Live Nation in 2009, five when we acquired the ACE Theatrical Group in the US in 2015, and a further five in 2018 when we acquired Mehr! Entertainment in Europe. The majority of roles with ATG are based in our venues, including the front of house team, technical, marketing and creative learning roles, box office and venue management.
Our Ticketing business is equally varied, including the UK’s largest theatre ticketing website ATGTickets.com and the Groupline and LOVETheatre brands. Based in our central London office, our operation includes teams varying from e-commerce and digital, CRM, communications and memberships, ticketing operations, group sales and project management.
We’re an internationally award winning producer, with both our in-house team and associated producers creating some of the world’s most popular theatre. ATG Productions are currently working on the West End run of King Lear starring Ian McKellen; take a look at our other recent productions on our team page. Award-winning producer Sonia Friedman OBE is a group partner and, among many other hit shows, Sonia Friedman Productions (SFP) has recently produced the critically-acclaimed Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, now open in ATG’s Lyric Theatre on Broadway. In Europe, ATG owns BB Group – an award-winning leading producer of premium musicals, ballet and live-music.
One of the group’s strengths is our shared services model, which centralises group-wide functions including events programming, ticketing services, risk management, and property management alongside HR, IT and finance in our London and Woking offices.
Having secured our place as the largest theatre organisation in the world, our intention now is to keep developing and ensure we offer the best service to all our customers, clients and partners. Since 2016 ATG has been led by our Chief Executive Mark Cornell and Group Commercial Director Adam Kenwright who are both keenly focused on ensuring the company achieves this goal.
