The New Wolsey Theatre is pleased to announce that it has recently partnered with three Suffolk businesses for 2014-2015, whose corporate sponsorship will allow the theatre to increase their youth and community work, create more accessible performances, nurture new and emerging talent, and create an eclectic programme of productions year after year. These businesses are Ipswich Building Society, chartered accountants Larking Gowen, and new Ipswich-based venture from Digaleo Digital.

As a not-for-profit charitable organisation, the New Wolsey relies on a variety of income streams to continue its work, such as part funding from Arts Council England, Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Borough Council, as well as the generosity and support of a number of individual givers and local businesses. The New Wolsey’s Culture Club, Corporate Partners and Sponsor schemes are designed to offer local businesses a chance to align their brand with their local theatre, providing an exciting platform for businesses to raise their profile and highlight their recognition of the New Wolsey’s community work.

Ipswich Building Society, who are currently Corporate Partners for the Autumn 2014 Season, will become sponsors of New Wolsey’s ever popular Rock ‘n’ Roll Pantomimes from February 2015 for three years.

We look forward to supporting the development of the theatre over this period, as well as being able to offer our members and staff exclusive access to an exciting programme of events. And all of this is before we then launch into a 3 year sponsorship of their ever popular Rock ‘n’ Roll Pantomimes in February 2015. It is an exciting time for us both and we look forward to working together over the next three years.”
