money: free entry, donations wanted

A couple of people have already asked about how money is working, as officially entry is free, but we've mentioned that profits are going to charity. So here's the full thought process (and disclaimer) about money - and therefore, entry.

T in the Barn costs nothing to come to, because this is the different between it being a private party, which it is, and a public event, which it is not.

You can only come to T in the Barn if you are invited - either by the hosts, or through one of the acts performing. It is a mini-festival for friends and peers, NOT for the general public. So if you've stumbled here by accident, apologies. Them there are the rules.

As it is therefore really a party, you would not expect to be charged. However, as it is all about good times, we hope you would enjoy yourself. And if you do, on the night we would ask you to make a small donation in lieu of two separate needs:

1] Event costs. Naturally, though these are minimal they will exist. By covering them together, it honours what the event is all about.

2] Charity: We enjoy life, we should try and help others do the same. Therefore, once costs are covered, all profits are to be split between charity: water and Tearfund respectively. More on these as time goes on.


Therefore, though if invited you are under absolutely no obligation to pay a penny for the honour, we would ask those coming to seriously consider supporting us and these causes. Thanks!
