CUBE PANTO Budget (approx)
You might be wondering how we are funding this Panto? We are doing it in the way The Cube and many people do triillons of things – with lots & lots of volunteer and amateur workers and performers, but also with inevitable fixed, variable & quantum costs.
The Cube has a history of making miraculous things happen outside the standard art venue conventions and external funding or grants. While bar sales will cover hidden costs and ensure The Cube (and therefore future Pantos) can continue into the future, we will pay the Panto's financial costs by selling tickets and doing some exceptional crowd funding – see Panto Patrons options on the event pages.
To help understand all this, please find the Quantum Horse budget below.
Please support us.

Props, Costumes, Sets etc = £2,000 (materials)
Transportation, travel and accommodation = £1,000
Catering - £1,000 (through the rehearsals & shows, important we keep ourselves warm and well)
