Step 1: Create a free Hub for your school

Click here to sign up for your free hub if you don't have one already.



Step 2: Add a new event using our Summer Ball template

Enter a title and select Summer Ball 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. Don’t worry if you currently don’t have one because an account can be created online in minutes here by following the prompted instructions that will 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. You can have a single entry ticket or even a couples ticket option. It's good a good idea to include what the ticket includes. A popular feature is the ability to also pre-sell additional items online like drinks, photo booth pictures, raffle tickets etc...


With our easy to use website, you can edit the price, dates when tickets can be purchased and a maximum available quantity (if any), for each entry ticket type, or across the whole event if you need to enforce a limit on total attendees.


It's easy to collect information when selling tickets. With all the usual questions added at a flick of a switch, we’ve got you covered with our incredibly flexible form-building capability. Ask for details like name or allergy info.


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

This system is the perfect solution to help you manage your summer ball 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.


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.


Be specific and detailed with each task and don't forget the all important task of booking a DJ... after all, there's no party without music! :)

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.


Summer balls are a time-honoured tradition for PTAs all over the country. They offer a chance for parents and staff to come together and celebrate the end of another school year. By following these simple steps, you can have your ticketing page set up in minutes and start selling tickets right away.
