Entrance to the event was free. 
As the Brockley Society has limited resources, a contribution of £5 from those who could afford it was welcomed, as the event was self-funded.

We did not offer payment to speakers, 
though there was opportunity for book sales.

There was a broad attendance from the community and was practical - 
speaking to everyone in our community.
