Throw the perfect event with ticketscript

Discover a way to easily sell tickets for your events


Exam dates are getting closer and the weather’s getting warmer (supposedly) which can mean only one thing: summer party season is nearly upon us.

Regardless of whether you’re marking the end of the academic year by throwing a formal ball or good ol’ fashioned rave, it’s important to get the little things right, which means not getting so caught up in booking circus performers and buying in the booze that you forget to sort out transport or sell any tickets.

Sure, you’ve got the booze but don’t forget to make it easy to buy tickets!

Thankfully, ticketscript are here to help you with the latter. Their ticketing system is quickly becoming a must-have tool for young event promoters in the UK and offers a free, easy alternative to asking for payment on the door or traipsing round campus selling paper tickets.

But how does it work?

If you’re going to put on an event that sends students away for the summer in style, then making the experience seem as professional as possible is key.

ticketscript enables your attendees to easily buy their tickets online, just like they would do if they were heading to a major summer festival.

If you don’t have a website set up, it’s just as easy to sell tickets directly through your Facebook page, bringing your ticket shop directly to your audience. It’s never been simpler for young people organising events to shift their tickets.

Once your ticket shop is set up, make sure you spread the word through social media at every available opportunity, and always include a direct link to the ticket shop. After all, people can’t buy tickets if they don’t know where they should go.

Make sure your event gets the thumbs up from attendees (Louise King)

Of course, when it comes to planning your event, getting ticket sales right is only one part of the process.

Here are some other things we suggest you keep an eye on to ensure your event is one for the ages:

Fill out the forms

Fireworks add the wow factor, but make sure you have permission

There’s a lot of boring paperwork that can get in the way of an amazing event, so make sure you have the appropriate food and drink licences as well as a decent curfew. If the event has to finish by 10pm and you’re not allowed to serve alcohol, you’ll have a lot of unhappy punters.

Will it rain?

Worried about the weather? Just put the event in a tent!

This is Britain. The weather is, usually, rubbish. Make sure your event is prepared to handle whatever Mother Nature throws your way, with covered outdoor queuing areas and mats to keep your entrance dry if the party is indoors.

It’s important that people are impressed from the moment they arrive, so pay attention to making the entrance to your event memorable. Get people into the event as smoothly as possible so they’re not kept waiting, and plan for the fact that some students will definitely turn up late!
