SkyCity Shakespeare Season – revised Timing and Terms

Further to my last newsletter, here’s an update showing a change in the timing as to when the Shakespeare Season Offer must close, and the amount required to proceed.

Further to my last newsletter, here’s an update showing a change in the timing as to when the Shakespeare Season Offer must close, and the amount required to proceed.
The actual dates of the opening of the event - and the season - are yet to be announced. However, the likely date will be either December 1 or 8. Tickets to attend the show will remain on sale for the next few weeks.
Meanwhile, of course, investors’ funds raised will remain in trust and not be spent until the event itself - and its timing - have been confirmed.
The Offer
On a cash basis, the amount of investment sought to deliver the season under this Offer is now only $300,000. And, unless funds are raised elsewhere - which is quite conceivable - the project will only go ahead once it is supported by a combination of:

  • Funds required received; this Offer not being the only source.

  • Future revenue expectations (for example group bookings).

  • Trading terms with suppliers; including deferred payments to align with income and/or incentive based on profit.

  • The normal and expected offsetting of hard cost via sponsorship or contra agreements.

  • Cancellation insurance is in place.

 The promoter’s aim, once a) is achieved, is to work towards b) and when the go/no-go date becomes clear, work with a team of advisors to apply a realistic assessment test to decide whether (or not) to proceed based on the situation at the time.

 The funds sought will be held in the Dominion Law Trust account until the season is confirmed.


The Team

During this waiting period the promoters will be operating with the cooperation of the liquidator of the old Pop-up Globe companies, Gareth Hoole of Ecovis KGA. In the meantime, with respect the trading, the advisors he will work with, include: 


  • Graham Clarke; a serial entrepreneur with extensive business growth, financial, and governance expertise. 

  • Chris Hocquard; principal at Dominion Law, and specialist in the business and law of entertainment. 

  • James Bell; principal at James Bell Accounting, accountants who specialise in small to medium sized businesses.

  • Season stakeholders at SkyCity and Eventfinda, both of which would be working under agreements in which their remuneration is linked to the success of the season.  

  • David Lawrence, Artistic Director, who is responsible for casting and making a production that delights audiences and sells tickets. David has been key to the artistic leadership of Pop-up Globe since 2015.
