Hog Programme 2015-16

Hog will continue to support villages on the scheme with up to a maximum of £700. There will be some adjustment to fees to minimise the financial risk for those who opt for more adventurous programming and also all children’s shows are ‘Hog extras’ which are in addition to your £700 allocation.

This year, rather than having a six month season which running from September to March, you can book shows for anytime until the end of March 2016. Please contact Susan or Nadine if you need any assistance with your bookings or have any questions.

If there is a company or performer you have had before and would like to invite back, there is no reason why you cannot contact them separately from Hog but funding will not be available for this.

Ticket Prices

This year ticket prices will have to be included on the booking form when it is submitted before we can confirm your funding. This will ensure all the relevant information is available in advance for publicity and for the web listings. Concession prices for young people and ticket prices without food should be offered where appropriate.

Making the Most of your Money

An example of a possible Hog Programme.


Elvis McGonagall

Fee £650

Box office income: 65 at £12

= £780


The CoalPorters

Fee £750

Box office income: 65 at £12

= £780

Total expenditure


Income (minus expenditure)

= £160



Plus Hog grant

= £700

Based on the above calculations you would now have £860 (£160 + £700) and you could also have a children’s show as an Extra.

Remember Hog Extras are in addition to your £700 grant allocation.

Thank you for your co-operation and we hope you have an enjoyable and successful 2015-16 Hog the Limelight Season.
