Dear Conwy County Borough Council,

Does Venue Cymru, Theatr Colwyn and/or any other entertainment venues run by CCBC charge a commission on merchandise sold by bands/artists who perform there? Or do you use a concession company to run the merchandise stalls?

If so what commission rate is charged, by yourself or a concession company and what was the yearly income from these charges over the past 3 years or fee paid by a concession company?

Yours faithfully,
