Malvern Walking Festival is held for a week at the end of May each year. There are over 70 walks during the week and people need to be able to book places and pay for them.
The website was originally created on a bespoke development platform which we maintained on their behalf. This has now been converted to work on WordPress with WooCommerce.
One of the features most useful in this environment was the ability to schedule products to appear in the shop at a particular time. Tradition dictates that the festival booking opens at midnight on 1st January, so all the walks are set up to go live at that point without us having to disturb any celebrations we may be having. It works, with some walks selling out in only a few minutes.
Another feature was the ability to filter walks according to length, date, rating and booking status to make it easier for people to find walks that interested them.
