A distinctly autumnal feel to the air reminds us that Halloween is just around the corner!


It's the perfect occasion for themed events! From fundraisers to stage shows, school events to parties. Remember to keep a camera handy during rehearsals or setup and even at the event. With all the costumes and dramatic makeup, Halloween is a photographic dream. These photos will give you great content for your promotions and will generate interest when you post them on your social media accounts.


It's worth having a backup plan if you're planning your event outdoors, as you need to be prepared for changing weather. Have other arrangements ready to adapt the event, incase the weather becomes dangerous.



TicketSource features for Halloween events:


Customise your sales pages


An occasion like Halloween is a great opportunity to customise your TicketSource sales page to suit the event, by adding spooky header/footer images or changing the colours. You could even customise your etickets with themed headers to echo the theme of the event and build anticipation for your customers.

Sell more online with TicketShop!


With the TicketShop app, you can integrate your sales page into your own website and/or your Facebook Page. Customers can be browsing your site or Page and purchase the tickets they want from your TicketSource sales page but without having to leave your site or Facebook to book!


If you'd like to start using TicketShop, take a look at our TicketShop guide for how to get it setup.

Extra promo!


List your event with us once, and we'll automatically post it to the UK's biggest entertainment guide – Ent24, and what's on websites The List and Eventful to spread the word about your event. We'll also tweet your event three times on our regional Twitter listings pages.



Maps on your etickets


However unusual or remote your location, just enter the postcode of the event when listing it and TicketSource will add a map of the area to your etickets to ensure that customers can find your event. You can even customise your etickets text to feature information on how to find you, where to park etc.
