Hello, this particular page is not written by some faceless secretary or agent. This is down to me, so I’ll take all the blame.
Years ago my mailboxes were flooded with Charity requests for goodies or appearances and the like. My then management decided that we should ‘adopt’ a few and only work for them, and that is what we did. That meant that even today I have to turn down so many requests which does sadden me, but you can’t do them all.
This year, however, I am opening the doors to a different idea which is a bit difficult to explain. Firstly you have to understand that my normal business pays me quite a large amount of money, which maintains all the costs of my office and running costs such as prop replacement and so on. A normal fee, dependent upon the size of the job and its requirements, can run between £6k to £25k.
When a charity asks for a show, and of course this depends entirely upon whether the date is free, my management endeavour to come to a discounted fee that still allows the charity to make a profit. They can be contacted at cdavis
I know from experience that they allow charities to make a profit, sometimes a considerable profit by organising a ‘happening’ and selling the tickets/running a raffle etcetera which, let’s face it, is what the companies that book me are able to do.
