Wychwood Festival invites fans to become shareholders
Festival launches crowdsourcing initiative
Chris Eustace - 11 October 2012
Wychwood owners Tribe Festivals Ltd, who also own Cheltenham Comedy Festival, will be offering a number of shares via the Crowd Cube platform to up to 200 individuals. In return for the share capital of £1000, new investors will receive a pair of tickets for life to Wychwood (valued at £280 each year), plus up to 12 tickets each year for friends and family that can be purchased at half price.
Additional benefits to investors onsite at Wychwood Festival each year are also promised, including £50 of bar credit and £50 of merchandise, along with discounted tickets to other Tribe-owned or run projects.
In their initial announcement, Tribe claim that “with this benefits package in place, investors would have potentially already seen a return on their investment in Year 1 and can then continue to expect this as a minimum year on year thereafter”, with the free tickets able to be transferred to friends and family if the investor was unable to attend, which a chance to profit share in any sponsorship they brought to the company as well, with buyers free to sell on their shares at any time, with the new buyer then taking on the festival benefits.
