no I dont have to make a profit. But have to convince my council that it is a goer so they dont want me to make a huge loss. I wanted £3 but they MADE me do my figures in front of them = biggish loss so am under pressure to raise the price a bit
Oh dear, hauled up before the Audit Beaks were you? No wonder you are bent double in agony. I'd definitely pitch it as low as you can to satisfy the number crunchers, then hopefully the amount of places booked will strengthen your case for keeping charges modest.
A 2 hour drama workshop round here (<1 hour from London)costs £8 and is popular at that price - so if you are including materials I would imagine that round here you could charge at least £8. I would pay that if it was a good workshop.
£5 at least Enid. I used to pay £3.50 for a "mucky pups" toddler class which was nothing more than painting/sticking/colouring printouts from C- Beebies and only lasted 30 minutes plus 10 minutes singing at the end.
