Orchestra Sponsorship

Did you know?
Typically our staged productions have costs of around £11,000 to present.  This year's show, Evita, is anticipated to have production costs in the region of £13,000

  • The supporting professional band can represent as much as 25% of the costs
  • less than 70% of the show's income is generated from ticket sales
  • Front of House sales, Advertising and Sponsorship help us to plug the gap
  • As a registered charity and not-for-profit organisation BCOS receives no public funding
  • We rely on the generosity of individuals, organisations, businesses, charitable trusts & foundations and our audiences to help us survive in an increasingly difficult economic climate. So....

Could you sponsor a player?

Evita sees us once again supported by a professional orchestra.  This year we have 9 instruments. We're looking for sponsorship of each player, plus the conductor!

- so that's 10 opportunities, listed on the left hand side.  
Already 80% have been sponsored - just 2 left to go!!

In return for a minimum donation of £80 you will get:-

  • Your name listed in the programme, acknowledging your sponsorship
  • 1 free adult ticket to the performance of your choice (value £14)
           (or 2 child tickets, value £6 each)
  • 1 free programme (value £2) 
  • 1 Evita canvas tote-bag (value £6)

All donations of any size are greatly valued and go directly towards providing our audiences with first-rate performances.

How to sponsor:

If you would like to sponsor then simply click on the image you wish to sponsor to download a form to complete, sign and then return to BCOS either by post or email.  

If you would rather remain anonymous just tick the appropriate box on the form.  

We will then be in contact regarding tickets when they go on sale in March to allocate your seat.

Gift Aid adds 25p in the pound to your donation, making your money go even further, so every donation of £80 becomes £100 at no additional cost to you, as long as you are a tax payer.
