Corporate Sponsorship for The Rhodes Pantomime
The Rhodes Pantomime is a key event in the annual calendar, attracting over 8,000 people through the doors every year.  We produce 55,000 leaflets which are distributed all over the local region, hundreds of posters and we also have a Pantomime programme.  There are three levels of sponsorship for this event – Gold x 1(£1250), Silver x2 (£500), and Bronze x 4(£250).  We also offer classified advertising in our programme starting at £100.

Competition for sponsorship is always fierce so we advise you to contact us early in the year to register your interest.  Please e-mail Jennifer Austin, Marketing Manager on

Sponsorship of  arts events and exhibitions
Our footfall increases year on year and we constantly strive to bring bigger and better quality entertainment to the local community.  We produce our own shows at Rhodes (e.g. Oliver! – September 2012), and we also host well known touring exhibitons ( e.g. David Hockney – December 2012) and are always willing to talk to local businesses about sponsorship opportunities and what we can offer you.  The benefits of sponsorship to businesses are many and include comprehensive regional promotion, increased profile and value for money – you are ensured a large amount of exposure for a very competitive price.
