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)

...but don't just take our word for it read our Testimonials

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.
