The Aurora Borealis? At that time of year? At that time of day? In this part of the country? Localised entirely on North Tce?

That is the power of the Fringe.

Royal Croquet Club bid for five-year Fringe lease at Pinky Flat backed by Premier Jay Weatherill
Renato Castello, The Advertiser
January 18, 2018 9:29pm

PREMIER Jay Weatherill is backing a bid by Adelaide Fringe venue the Royal Croquet Club for a long-term event lease in the Parklands.

Mr Weatherill, Bank SA chairman Peter Hanlon and Arts SA executive director Peter Louca have written to Adelaide City Council in support of an application by RCC for exclusive rights to its Pinky Flat Fringe hub for a five years.

The council will hold what is expected to be a confidential emergency meeting on Tuesday to consider the application which comes just weeks after the RCC directors Stuart Duckworth and Tom Skipper secured last-minute approval to stage the event at this year’s Fringe.


The Advertiser understands that the RCC’s bid for a long-term lease is being backed by a successful South Australian businessman who has made his fortune in hospitality.

In a January 15 letter, addressed to Lord Mayor Martin Haese and sighted by The Advertiser, Mr Weatherill said as Arts Minister he supported the RCC being granted a “multi-year” licence.

“The activation of Pinky Flat site contributes greatly to the vibrancy and entertainment options available across the city during our peak festival period,” he wrote.

“It not only attracts audiences into the area, but also offers complementary arts and entertainment options to audiences attracted to the area to attend other events ...”

Mr Hanlon wrote the RCC adds to the “rich fabric” of the city and its “international renown”. “Having previously been a senior executive with the Westpac Banking Corporation, I’m well aware of the role certainty plays in any financial enterprise,” he wrote in a January 15 letter.

“This is why I urge the Lord Mayor and Councillors ... to vote in favour of this five-year lease proposal.”

Mr Louca, who also wrote a January 15 letter to the council, said a long-term lease would provide greater stability for planning, artistic programming and venue development.

But Councillor Anne Moran said she would want to see some “really solid financials” to be convinced of approving a long-term lease.

“They are going to have to really pull a rabbit out of a hat for me,” she said.

“I don’t think the Fringe would die if they did not have the Royal Croquet Club.”

Councillor Alex Antic said given the RCC’s financial problems he was concerned about issuing them a lease longer than a year.

“My concern is making sure ratepayers are protected from ongoing liabilities,” he said.

The council on January 5 approved RCC’s licence for this year’s Fringe event after directors Stuart Duckworth and Tom Skipper met a third and final deadline to provide financial security to cover post-event remediation of the Pinky Flat site.

The RCC was placed in voluntary administration last June but creditors voted in September to approve a Deed of Company Arrangement to allow them to keep trading.

Why does Anne Moran or anyone else in the council need to see "strong financials" of someone leasing a miniscule section of the parklands for a pop up venue over a couple of weeks of the year? Do they ask to see "strong financials" of the food truck vendors they allow at various venues? Do they ask to see "strong financials" of a Chinese building company before they approve an apartment tower? Surely, if RCC lease the site for 5 years, and then fold...it can then be re-let to someone else to put in a pop up venue at that time.

The council are against it, that's why they'll throw up any excuse and as many walls to try and stop it, without being seen to actually say we don't want this.
The sooner the council is abolished the better.
