Thread Name: the UK folk revival in 2010
Subject: RE: the UK folk revival in 2010
Concerts in Community or Village Halls if promoted properly do attract people who have never watched folk music before.
We have a full licence at our village hall and get between 60 to 100 people each time who spend their money over the bar. We don't have the problem of the Landlord not making enough money to survive.
We work bloody hard to make it succesful. It can be done.
The problem with a pub, is that the landlord is in charge! Yes its lovely and it has atmosphere, but so can any place.
Bear in mind we only have 300 people in the village.
We don't get any problems whatsover from rowdy, I don't want to listen to your music pubites.
Everybody that goes to our events goes for the music and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of like people enjoying the music.
