Over the recent months we have been publicising our talks and events more widely on our website and on Facebook. This has raised the profile of the Friends of the Hatton and allows us to reach a broader audience with, and get new members.
At times, this has generated a lot of interest from Friends and non-Friends alike. For our free talks this isn’t that much of a problem (aside from the possibility of exceeding the capacity of booked rooms). For our paid activities and workshops with a limited number of spaces however it is more of an issue. The committee has decided therefore to introduce a two tier pricing structure for workshops and a waiting list to ensure Friends get priority and cheaper fees.
We will also be encouraging non-member attendees of our free talks to make a donation to Friends of the Hatton, or, even better, to join up.
