I'm in the process of arranging an all ranks do and am trying to balance arranging a good event that people will want to attend against keeping the costs (and consequently the ticket price) down. My initial proposal of Â£25 a ticket apparently had people up in arms as it was too high, so I am looking for ways of subsidising the costs and bringing this down. What do other people pay for their summer balls as I don't think Â£25 is too much or am I just too ready to hand over my cash ? Also what do you do to try and keep the ticket price down ? Any advice gratefully received.
