Obviously it’s a high priority to sell as many tickets as possible for our concerts, and we depend a lot on members for this. Some amateur choirs insist on members buying a certain number of tickets for each concert, whether or not they can sell them.
The ECS levy is a lot gentler. Every member currently pays £30 for three tickets which can be used for any of our four concerts in that season. They can’t be carried over to another year. It’s up to you which concerts you use them for and whether you sell them for £10 or for their face value of £12.
Some members choose not to use their levy tickets but regard them as a donation to the choir. However, whilst subscriptions can be Gift Aided we can’t claim Gift Aid on the levy.
