BIG thank you to all who came to our first ever donation concert. If you're interested in the breakdown of figures, here goes:
32 people came of 35 that had booked into a 30 person (seated) venue.
They freely donated a total of £245 in 'tickets' (that's £7.65 average per person).
The most donated amount was £10 with 2 £20's and 6 £5's.
On top of that 4 people bought CD's for £10.
I added 25 new emails to the list from this one concert (because they had to book in advance with their email address). That's much more than have signed up at a concert in my previous shows (on average).
Our last concert was £12 a ticket (home town), and 70 people came, but that was an album launch, not every event will draw in as many people. I am sure that more people came to the event because it was 'risk free', than if we had set a ticket price of even £5.
More donation concerts to follow!
