Sponsoring or partnering our dynamic community arts organisation is a proven, cost effective and highly visible marketing tool for businesses in our county. It is one of the most powerful and effective ways to reinforce your company’s name, logo, products and services in a positive light to targeted audiences. Partnerships can take the form of sponsoring specific shows or arts activities or even areas/aspects of the building and its functions that align with your brand or business ethos.

The Courtyard is a vibrant and busy venue with a huge footfall of well over a third of a million a year, with a wide range of sell-out shows and events to choose from. This enables you to target any kind of audience from families (panto) to adults only (comedy clubs etc).
