Financial models

For the festival, participating companies pay a £300 participation fee up-front, and in return get two performance slots and 100% of ticket sales for those shows. The participation fee helps cover festival expenses, promotions, and programme printing. You are of course welcome to do any of your own additional promotional activity, too.

Ticket pricing is up to you, but between £10 and £15 is pretty standard. 100% of the box office is paid to the company.

What you charge can of course influence how many tickets you sell, for better or worse, and how much you can potentially make on a show. Here we’ve worked out some examples of how a two performance run might work out for you at different ticket price bands:

Advertised cost 100% Sell out
(42 tickets)
/ x 2 shows
50% sold
(21 tickets)
/ x 2 shows
less £300 festival fee profit at 100% profit at 50%
