OK everyone, it's time to talk about money...
Liza said "money makes the world go round"; The Andrew Sisters told us that "money is the root of all evil"; and, even Monty Python said "there's nothing quite as wonderful as money".
When we started planning Morecambe & Vice, our goal was never to make money. It was, and always will be, to bring as many of the best crime authors to our hometown for an annual weekend of fun, festivities, and people that share a common love: crime fiction.
In all our excitement planning what will be a phenomenal festival, we've overspent. We were like parents at Christmas, wanting to treat our children to everything and anything that would bring them joy, regardless of the cost.
So, we need your help. Not to make money, to turn a profit or to pay ourselves a big fat festival bonus. Nope, we need your help to break even.
If we can break even after M&V 2018, we'll consider the event a success. I mean, we know that the event WILL be a success - we have so many wonderful authors and guests coming to see so many wonderful crime fans - but in terms of our finances, we'd love to break even.
So all we ask is that you spread the word about M&V to everyone you know - each and every ticket bought will help us break even. And if you can donate to help us out, it would be most appreciated.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Ben, Tom & the M&V team
