Supporters

The Bunbury Banter Theatre Company works as a collective of theatre professionals and we would not be able to stage our theatre productions, run the many educational programs and air our audio plays, without the kind assistance from many different people.

We are extremely grateful for all the wonderful support we have received over the years and for the support we continue to receive from a number of different directions; be that through financial donations, advice and guidance, discounted or free services and space hire, associations and general support for our aims and ethos.

Drama and access to the arts is essential but when everyone is feeling the pinch and as the economic crisis seems set to linger on, some of our parents and students are really struggling to fund their participation in our drama classes, workshops and educational programs.

Creative Angels

Drama and access to the arts is essential but when everyone is feeling the pinch and as the economic crisis seems set to linger on, some of our parents and students are really struggling to fund their participation in our drama classes, workshops and educational programs.

So in response to this situation, we have set up Bunbanter’s Creative and Associate Angels scheme which is designed to encourage local businesses and companies to pledge their support (financial or other) and ensure that drama is still offered in their local community, even to the most deprived.



Message from our Patron: Finty Williams

“Being an avid Radio 4 listener, and having done many radio plays myself, I am always interested in hearing any new drama. I was delighted when I was given the opportunity to hear Bunbury Banter’s radio plays; it has a new and exciting energy which is such a joy to hear. The acting, writing and music are all of the highest quality. I hope the company goes from strength to strength and that many other people have the privilege to hear them. I was thrilled when I was asked to be a patron and will look forward to hearing them going forward.”


Thank you so much for all of your help, wisdom, and support.

Alan Bennett, Harriet Walter, Zoe Wanamaker, Nichola McAuliffe, Jane Asher, Sir Peter Hall, Stephen Unwin, Timothy West, Prunella Scales, Sutish Shama, Jayne Dickinson, Peter Craze and everyone at Drama Studio London, Caroline at The New Inn, Ealing, Ranj Rasul, Jenny Wilson, Charles Douthwaite, Andrew Barns-Graham, Dirk Maggs, Jenny Gibbs, Charles Hammond and John Mayfield… To name but a few.


…you cannot underestimate the value of keeping wonder alive. Wonder keeps our spirits joyous and resilient.

The Bunbury Banter Theatre Company can only make relevant, powerful and essential creative work with the support of many individuals, businesses and organisations, often in the form of funding and sponsorship. With the recent cuts, our educational work also needs extra investment and we’re not alone!

If you can, please take a moment, to watch the video as the following information sums up why continuation of public and private investment in the arts is not only important, but downright vital!

  • Britain’s cultural sector has boomed after sustained government investment
  • Together, we have created world-class work, landmark institutions and quality education programmes
  • Cultural events bring communities together and make our lives richer; we saw this in action at the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, which drew on talent fostered by public investment
  • Cuts to public funding will destabilise the whole sector, undermining the confidence of sponsors and private investors – closures will be inevitable
  • Arts and culture are relatively cheap to support, and bring big returns. The current investment is 14p per person per week; equal to less than 0.05 per cent of total government spending

Sponsors

We have extremely attractive sponsorship packages available to corporations, companies and individuals for both our educational and creative work.

Please get in contact with Phil (our company producer) on 07738 839 295 or phil@bunbanter.com for more information.
