What does a G4a budget look like?
Here’s an example: sample budgets
Making a budget requires you to show both “income” and “expenditure” as well as “in kind support”. You would usually have to calculate your income streams in different ways which can include (a percentage of) ticket sales. Most Edinburgh shows calculate their box office at 40% capacity and given that deals are often made with venues on a box office split of takings (usually in the venue’s favour), this can significantly reduce the projected income. It is always important to be realistic about the budget and to build in sufficient “contingency” funds to deal with unexpected items.
