Action Points Finance

  • Saxaphonist has sent through his prices at £650 for the night. This was felt to be far too much of an initial layout although what is offered was new and interesting. No longer pursuing of this avenue.
  • 22nd June hall has been booked for a 90’s/00’s night. – Tickets on sale
  • 26th of October has been provisionally booked for band-e-oke in either the hall or vine lounge depending on interest. SB stated that she felt the hall is more appropriate for this kind of event, understands it is unfelt this would be the way attendees feel.SB suggested we only offer the hall as the vine lounge is far too small for the event and if we want to attract lots of people it limits this. Ongoing
