Pending the mailing list's consensus: I'm planning it for a maximum of 20 people, in the quiet room, with the cost at £5 a head. That'd include a large miracle fruit tablet each and plenty of food (including lemons and limes), plus non-alcoholic drinks and a pack of antacid tablets for afterwards. (You'll need them.)
