Webinar Summary

Culture, music, art, food and entertainment have a crucial role in the development of vibrant communities and in ensuring the livelihood of cities. This webinar will offer an opportunity to discuss the value of placemaking for communities and the city, and the key factors to develop it successfully. The panel will address key questions including:
  • What is the role of art, culture, food and entertainment in communities and what is needed in terms of infrastructure, what are the opportunities and challenges of meanwhile use, and how can we ensure that the cultural elements are considered at the beginning of the development process and well-looked after following completion?
  • What is the role of the different stakeholders and how can they successfully work together?
  • How important is placemaking to foster community engagement and inclusivity, what is needed for it to be successful and what is the impact on people’s wellbeing?
  • The COVID-19 crisis has heavily impacted culture, entertainment and vibrancy of place – how will this evolve and impact future placemaking strategies?
The audience will have a chance to ask questions during the panel discussion to further develop the topic.

Sebastian Lyall, Founder and CEO of Lollipop
Sebastian Lyall is arguably among the hospitality industry’s most creative brains, launching Lollipop in 2015, which has seen experiences created in bar, restaurant and escape room settings, including award-winning WW2 inspired bar, The Bletchley, where customers crack codes to devise their own cocktails and which is the group’s most profitable site. He is an operator not afraid of turning traditional bar operating processes and experiences on their head and breaking boundaries, with creative and sometimes controversial pop-ups also including naked restaurant The Bunyadi (which he hopes to bring back as a permanent site) and a pop-up owl café. Lollipop, which has grown this far without any external investment, was going from strength to strength before the COVID-19 lockdown, operating four different concepts, including two funhouses in Hackney and Chelsea which both house three different venues, an ABQ bar in Paris and The Grid escape room in Southwark.
Group sales have flourished from 500k in 2015/16 to a predicted £3m in 2020 (pre-COVID-19 crisis estimate), through a business model which rests on higher margins and high spend per head, with average 30% site EBITDA from sites.
