What Is The Minimum Venue Fee?

 

This is not charged up front, but taken out of your final Box Office settlement. Ventnor Fringe will retains this fee or the chosen Box Office split whichever is higher but not both. This is also the amount we charge participants that cancel after signing the contract. If your total Box Office amount does not meet the minimum venue fee, we will keep your Box office receipts and invoice you for the difference. It is important you understand before registering that you can end up owing the festival money if you do not sell enough tickets to meet this cost please choose a deal most suited to your show. If you need help to decide please ask the Ventnor Fringe team by emailing artists@vfringe.co.uk
