Default Racecourse music gigs

Any news on whether there are plans for any further music gigs next year ? This was seen as a money spinner with the club taking over the ground, but it all seems to have gone quiet.

Dont know how true but interesting thread on https://www.totalrl.com/forums/index...-at-queensway/

"By the way, they don't have a license to hold concerts any more, it was only valid for three years and has expired"

I thought it was quoted that one good music event per year would help cover the annual rental of The Racecourse. Probably a good reason for changing that 'policy'.

I don't want the egg throwers wrecking our pitch so no loss there then.

Speaking to Andy Moulsdale last night, he said that after the supporters trust meeting he had a conversation with Wrexham FC legend Dixie McNeil (he is the football club's president). When he told Dixie about the £9,000 a game rent he hit the roof, not at all happy to hear about the way we are being treated.

Where do they get these figures from, I've heard it's £15k to hire Cardiff City stadium!

Shrewd businessmen we have.

I wonder what the costs are when you add them up. Posts and marking to be arranged. Pitch prepared and brought back to football standards. Safety checks, lighting, heating, cleaning, etc etc etc add to that a bit of profit and possibly additional insurances.
What does Andy Moulsdale think is a reasonable fee - and breakdown of figures ?

Isn’t 9k pricing ourselves out of the market a bit. Especially if they want the takings from all food & drink sold too....

Newport County are apparently charged £7k a game and expected to pay for the upkeep of the pitch after use.

2 rugby teams and a football club play at Rodney Parade.

The fee is excessive, especially for a side that attracts small crowds, taking all takings for food is taking the p*ss!
