In respect of paying punters - we can make a confident estimate of:
How did we come to this number? We have a cash total for ticket sales on the door AND we know how many tickets we have left and how many we printed.
It isn't an exact figure as we can't be certain tickets weren't used for other purposes, and our door total doesn't distinguish between who paid £3 and who paid £1.
That estimate doesn't include traders, gamers putting on games and of course the Red Shirts helping out at the show. The number is up on last year, and getting on for double that of three years ago - the last show held at the much smaller Woodside Halls.
