a message from Heart of the World

Whichever way you look at it, losing is really hard to take. Even harder than dealing with losing is breaking the news to people. You shared our dream and held our hand as we ran for all we were worth toward the stage. It’s amazing the amount of momentum that built up in such a short space of time. But here it is. We didn’t get it.

On October the 5th someone else bought the theatre.

We failed you and we’re sorry. We had some major investors bail on us and despite all the wonderful donations from you fine people; in the end we just could not get enough money in time.

What happens now is that we honour our promise to you, that in the event of us failing to buy the theatre “the money goes back to the people”. Due to the large number of donations we received it will take some time to get through them all, so please be patient.

We’d just like to say again, and believe us we can’t say this enough; we’re eternally grateful for all your support. You believed and tried to spark some wonder back into the world. You scrimped and you saved and you sacrificed and if that wasn’t enough you then told your friends about us and made them do the same. Despite the fact we didn’t get to where we wanted to be you are all still awesome, you’re all kisses and butterflies and we love you.
