Thread Name: Anti PEL benefit gig Harlow 17.5.03
Subject: RE: Anti PEL benefit gig Harlow 17.5.03
After paying for the room, performers,and advertising there is unlikely to be any money, and the chances are we will be running at a loss. £5.00/£4.00 conc for Saturday night entertainment at this quality is actually very good. The 'benefit' is an awareness night. Anything over will go to the performers.

If you want a breakdown, the room holds 73 max. If we get a full house thats £350 approx. Room costs £80. advetising approximaelty £50.00. That will leave a total of £220 to pay main act and support,
This is assuming we have a full house. The perfomers will know how many paid audience there are.That is the accountability

Anyone who runs folk events/clubs knows how hard it is to break even. Thats why we're so annoyed about the proposed licensing bill.
