Pre-Sell Tickets for Your Leavers' Party

Attention PTAs, this is the time of year when you start to think about your school leavers' party - a big event for the Year 6 students as they finish their final year of primary school. Tickets will be in high demand, so it's important to start pre-selling them now! With PlanSocial you can create your own ticket sales hub and set up your Leavers' Party event in minutes! Follow the steps below to get started.

Step 1: Create a free Hub for your school

Click here to sign up for your free hub.

Step 2: Add a new event using our Leavers' Party template

Enter a title and select Leavers' Party from the dropdown, then select 'Go'.

Select ‘Sell online tickets’ and click the link to connect your payment account.

You'll first be prompted to connect to your existing Stripe account. They will ask if your community has an existing Stripe account - select ‘Yes’ if you already have an account. Don’t worry if you currently don’t have one because an account can be created online in minutes here - simply select ‘No’ and follow the instructions that follow.

You will need to provide your PTA's bank details and a contact person. (If you also provide proof of your PTA's charity status you can benefit from reduced-rate Stripe fees.)

Step 3: Add the tickets and items you'd like to sell

Next up our template has it set for you to sell entry tickets. In this template we have a single entry ticket which includes food and a t-shirt, however you can edit this to suit your event.  A popular feature is the ability to also pre-sell additional items online like drinks and food and miscellaneous items. This template includes the sale of hoodies and yearbooks for the leavers.

With our friendly user interface, you can edit the price, dates when tickets can be purchased and a maximum available quantity (if any), for each ticket type, or across the whole event.

Collecting information when selling tickets should be easy. With all the usual questions added at a flick of a switch, we’ve got you covered with our incredibly flexible form-building capability. Here you can easily create forms to collect needed information such as a child's name, class or allergies.

Step 4: Invite and assign any event organisers and add tasks

This system is the perfect solution to help you manage your Christmas Fair tasks with ease. With PlanSocial, up to 20 core organisers can carry out tasks. You can delegate them accordingly by assigning volunteers or managers as needed for each task or you can include detailed descriptions, including how long a volunteer is needed. This way parents can feel comfortable choosing a task that they can handle without feeling pressured.

This template includes many important tasks needed for a successful event but feel free to edit and add as much as you like.

Don’t fret if you have more than 20 volunteers. If you upgrade to the paid Community Hub plan, you can open up volunteering opportunities to all parents.

Step 5: Add the event date to publish it, and share the link

You’ve made it to the last step. Simply edit the date by clicking 'Edit' at the top right hand side of your screen and enter the details.

Now you can share the link with parents in your school so they can purchase tickets safely using their debit or credit card from any device (we're mobile responsive). Leavers' Party here we come!
