by -

Time Out Group has bought theatre website Whatsonstage.com, the company’s third acquisition in the last three months.

Time Out has recently also bought luxury shopping site Kelkoo Select and the lifestyle club Keynoir.

According to a statement issued by Time Out, the “Whatsonstage.com website and business will be retained as a separate but complementary brand within the Time Out Group and will continue to be run by Terri Paddock, Whatsonstage.com’s managing and editorial director”.

Time Out chief executive David King described the purchase as “an important addition to our theatre and ticket sales business”.
