Syndicating Event Information
We welcome other sites carrying our event information. To make this easier we publish event information for the next 6 months in both IVES format and in an extended RSS format which should help you be able to extract the relevant information for your website.
Should you syndicate any of our content please let us know by contacting webmaster (AT) jrtheatrecouk. Please be aware that we do not own the copyright in show images, and so the use of these images outside the context of the show information would need permission from the copyright holder.
IVES Event Feeds
We have implemented the International Venue and Event Standard (IVES) event information XML schema - this is the best way to get event information from us on an ongoing basis.
Our venue ID is http://ives.info/gb/jz5wz
Our IVES feed can be found at http://jrtheatre.co.uk/feeds/ives_events.xml
You can get further information on IVES on their website.
The RSS feed is at http://jrtheatre.co.uk/feeds/event_rss.xml and contains information for shows over the next 6 months. Additionally there is a short term feed that covers one month at http://jrtheatre.co.uk/feeds/upcoming_rss.xml
The feeds include additional markup tags using the Event Module. This gives information on when the event occurs. However this does not give sufficient information to handle performance times so we use an additional specialised RSS Module which packages performance time and pricing information.
The content part of the RSS feed contains basically the same information as the event entries on our web pages.
Other Event Syndications
If the IVES or RSS feeds are not suitable for your use, but you wish to carry our event information then please contact us regarding this. We may well be able to work against other APIs to export our event information.
We are not prepared to manually copy event information to other websites. However we will work with other sites to transfer event information to them.
We have a monthly newsletter which covers event information - to sign up for this please fill in the subscription form
We are also able to generate a slightly more tailored email format — please contact us to discuss this.
