A Camera Club evening!!! I dare say booking Mr McCabe set the club back a few quid..... which club is this, by the way? I always like to see what other clubs do. I'm sure it would have been a marvellous evening.
We had a relatively minor photographic celeb for our season's star speaker, a local gent who has become quite well-known in Canada but probably not much further afield. He cost an initial $800 plus 50% of the profits and he ended up with a bit over $1300 (around 800 of your English quids).
If we want somebody a bit more famous he/she would likely have to come from Toronto or Ottawa and require overnight expenses. For club-night speakers we normally budget about $50 for a local speaker, (30 pounds-ish) and up to $100 for somebody that has to travel an hour or so. Toronto or Ottawa are over two hours away and can be a tricky drive in winter.
