Do we need a licence to hold an online event?

Depending on the event you may require a licence, please see our information sheet and check with your local authority for further guidance.

How could the PTA Events platform help with organising and publicising our events?

With PTA Events you can publicise your event, sign up volunteers and sell tickets online. Maggie Flannigan from Friends of Three Rivers Academy told us "Quite simply, without PTA Events we wouldn’t consider organising an event like our recent colour run. It was absolutely invaluable when it came to monitoring numbers, pre-registering runners and taking payment for tickets." Click here to find out more and register for a PTA Events website.
