Our ambitious plans for 2014 will cost just under £300,000. We are proud to earn 80% of our income and currently only receive public funding on a project related basis. As an unsubsidised charity we rely on the vision and generosity of our business sponsors and donors who help us make up the shortfall each year.

 

With your help we can continue to inspire and nurture more of the audiences of tomorrow. In return, a relationship with our high-profile events gives you:

 

  • distinctive exposure in Guildford and the surrounding area
  • a unique way to entertain existing/prospective clients, or a great way to reward staff
  • an exceptional opportunity to support the local community, its economy and cultural well-being
  • access to 4000 captive audience members every season (based on 2013 figures)

Working with previous sponsors and listening to their needs, we have created two fabulous value sponsor packages which, depending on the level of involvement you wish to have, will guarantee to put you and your business centre stage.
