Why is this launch event not free to attend?

Creative writing and its performance is undervalued. Like much of the arts, there is an expectation that the work is free and that exposure is everything. While we love free events and free admission, that’s not exactly the kind of arts landscape we want always to reinforce. This issue and the launch event is the collective result of hundreds of hours of work. An amateur comedy show can charge £5 for a ticket for a handful of performers, so we think an evening of readings should charge too.

We really believe in equitable opportunities and passing it forward, so if you can afford to pay more, or cannot afford a ticket, please choose the ‘Pay as you can afford’ option and enter the amount that best suits you. We suggest your household income (in £) divided by 10,000, and then squared.

e.g.

£20,000: £4

£35,000: £12.25

If you’re in the UK and your household income is less than £16,000 (not including benefits), your ticket is free. Just input 0 into the box after selecting the Pay as you can afford option.
