Theatre Royal provides an attractive return on investment for corporate supporters, and it’s not just us saying that, as some 75% of the businesses with whom we work come back to sponsor us again. We aim to offer a Benefits Package tailored to meet the individual needs and objectives of a business.  So, let us start a conversation and we can find out what is important to you.

What we can do for you

A business relationship with Theatre Royal is an excellent way to raise your profile, secure publicity, promote services to theatre audiences, contribute to the local community, build relationships with clients and reward your staff. Companies can sponsor any production within our programme, partner our education and community work, or if the classical is attractive, sponsor our Heritage programme that attracts thousands of visitors and tourists each year – after all we are the last remaining Regency Playhouse in the country. Or, why not sponsor our ticket print run, have your own Theatre Royal Box, or a even a colour advert in our ticket wallets, the list is broad so talk to us about how we can make sponsorship work for your company. In addition, enjoying a performance in the only surviving Regency playhouse in the world is a unique experience for your business clientele.

What your support would mean to us

The financial support that your sponsorship gives the Theatre will help us:

  • Ensure our stability. We are a unique heritage site; a 200 year old theatre, and the third oldest in the UK. Whilst we cannot guarantee to still be here entertaining audiences in another 200 years, we would like to give it a go!
  • Continue to offer excellent theatre and a highly varied programme with ticket prices that are affordable
  • Continue running projects for people who are more vulnerable than others or find life more of a challenge. Our Education and Community Officers run activities which benefit youngsters from 3-21 years but also, amongst others, disabled people, those with mental health problems, young people at risk, senior citizens, those in rural communities, and on low income
  • Continue to offer discretionary reductions where necessary and free places for those children who need them with our  Education and Community programmes
