How to Sell Christmas Panto Tickets Online

Attending Christmas Pantomimes has become a yearly tradition for many schools. The children look forward to heading to the theatre and it’s always a joy to see the smiles on their faces when they come home and tell us all about the show and how they were in belly fits of laughter. 


I’m aware PTAs have gone through loads of stress adjusting how events have to be run the past few years and adhering to new guidelines put in place because of Covid-19. With Christmas just around the corner, many of you are probably busy planning for your various fundraising events.
