Your business will have a full page advert in our programme, complimentary tickets to a performance of your choice and a mention of your company in the pantomime itself throughout the run!

Swan Theatre Balcony Sponsorship
The glass windows facing the Pitchcroft carpark, which has over 345 spaces, lead to our balcony looking over the picturesque racecourse. This would be an ideal space to entertain your clients before, during and after a show. This also comes with naming rights and your companys logo displayed on the balcony doors. During you sponsorship this would be called 'The (your name here)’s Balcony!'.
Swan Youth Theatre Sponsorship 2023/2024

We can create any combination of the following packages, but here are some examples to give you an idea of the difference you could make to the young people in our community:
£1000 = 6 bursary places in our Juniors group, 6 places in our Inters group and 4 places in our Seniors group.
£500 = 3 bursary places in our Juniors group, 3 places in our Inters group and 2 places in our Seniors group.
£250 = 2 bursary places in our Juniors group and 2 places in our Inters group.
