Step 1: Create a free Hub for your school

Step 2: Add a new event using our Valentine's Disco template

Enter a title and select Valentine's Disco 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 family ticket option. For this disco we will go for having single entry tickets for the children. A popular feature is the ability to also pre-sell additional items online like drinks, food, glowsticks and in this case, some extra Valentine's goodies!


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.


Once paid for in advance, you can either distribute these tickets via the child's class/book bags or ask people to show their receipt at the entrance to the disco.


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 child's name, class 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 disco 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.


Don't forget to add the important task of food prep. You'll need help with the baking or purchasing of all the sweet treats that will make this Valentine's disco so special!

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.
