Global Licensing NZ Ltd Appointed Licensing Agent for The Rocky Horror Show in Australia & New Zealand

The Rocky Horror Show is a brand which has become part of our cultural landscape. Having shone the light on inclusivity (at a less accepting time), the Rocky Horror Show opened in 1973... during Glam Rock and before Punk, Women’s Liberation and Gay Pride.

It has been performed in over 30 countries and has a current 50th Anniversary Tour in progress starring Jason Donovan, recently breaking box office records in Melbourne as the highest grossing show ever at the Athenaeum Theatre.

Rocky Horror is an icon with huge fan and social engagement including 600M views of #ROCKYHORROR on TikTok (and continuing to climb as new generations discover and find new ways to engage with the brand)! The classic movie is also airing on Disney+.

The licensing programme includes a new style guide with logos, characters, lyrics, icons, patterns & slogans along with vintage poster artwork. Focus categories for Global will include Apparel & Accessories, Gifting, Homewares, Makeup, Prints & Posters & more.

Mitch Dowd Signs Apparel Agreement for BSA Motorcycles

This new agreement encompasses Adult & Children's Outerwear, Sleepwear, Underwear, Socks and Headwear. The first t-shirt designs are expected to launch first half of 2024.
BSA (Birmingham Small Arms Company Ltd), was founded in 1861, for the production of firearms. The brand’s motorcycle division was set up in 1903, and the first motorcycle followed in 1910. The 1930s introduced the B31, Gold Flash and the Bantam. Later years delivered even more excellent machines with those evocative titles; Lightning, Rocket, Shooting Star, Spitfire, Gold Star, Firebird, Thunderbolts, Royal Star Starfire. BSA enjoyed great success and by 1951 had become the world's biggest motorcycle manufacturer. One in every four motorcycles sold worldwide was a BSA.
BSA Motorcycles was acquired in October 2016 by Classic Legends Pvt. Ltd, a subsidiary of the Mahindra Group. This iconic British motorcycle brand is now back and they return with the all new BSA Gold Star. A design icon of its era, redefined to reclaim its glory in the current times, the new BSA Gold Star’s design is a befitting evolution of BSA’s most successful motorcycle.

Global Licensing Appointed Australia/NZ Licensing Agent for Book Hungry Bears


9 Story Distribution International Ltd, the worldwide licensor for the exciting new CGI preschool TV series “Book Hungry Bears’, has appointed Global Licensing NZ Ltd as Licensing Agent for Australia & NZ. Book Hungry Bears is a NZ, Canada and China co-production between Pūkeko Pictures, Breakthrough Entertainment and Hengxin Shambala Kids, and is distributed by 9Story. 52 x 11 min episodes (Series 1) are broadcast on ABC in Australia and TVNZ in NZ.


Show Synopsis

The Book Hungry Bears love sharing books. They are hungry to learn all they can from the picture books that flit and flutter about in the Bear’s beautiful papercraft world. Join Crystal, Boomer, Melody and Scout as they search amongst the paper trees for a new book to share. Then get “close and comfy” with them as they settle down to enjoy the book together, sharing the delight of the narrative and learning about each other and the incredible world around them.

Book Hungry Bears is a celebration of the love of children’s picture books. In this series, the books are read just like a child would read a story with their family, a shared experience that can be replicated at home. Each book’s illustrations appear just as they do in the book - they don’t magically animate, it is the reading of the book that brings the stories to life. Every adventure is a captivating experience centred around a book, a lesson and relating this back to everyday life. It is a way of enriching young children’s lives through great stories, and a great book.
