An overwhelming majority of survey responses (200) said that they would like to put an item in a regional member’s exhibition, but would like it every 2/3 years. The response being so high the committee feels that we could do an exhibition annually for a number of years initially and have 70-100 entries. 129 of those 200 stated that they would be willing to steward and indeed at some venues they have asked us if we could ‘do an activity during our exhibition’. More of this is to follow.
The venue costs of putting on an exhibition vary and the travel costs of the display team have to be accounted for as well. A £5.00 ‘hanging fee’ for 100 pieces would raise just enough to cover both these, which is good because 160 of you suggested the ‘£5.00 and £5.00 and under’ in the survey responses to this question.
