Alcohol spending

Publication date: 
Tuesday 28 April 2020

For the years 2017/18, 2018/19 and 2019/20 please would you tell me:

1. How much money has been spent on alcohol?

2. What was the purpose of events for which alcohol was purchased?


We don’t keep a separate log of how much is spent on alcohol as we buy from suppliers who provide all products for the bar. We also buy from supermarkets.

We have a front of house spend which covers everything from sweets, to popcorn to alcohol.

The only purpose it is purchased is for sale at theatre events including shows, over 18 films and parties. All alcohol purchased for sale by us is consumed and sold on the premises under the terms of our licence.

You are free to use any information supplied to you for your own use, including non-commercial research purposes. However, any other type of re-use, for example, by publishing the information or issuing copies to the public will require the permission of the copyright owner.
