Advertising

Reach an annual audience of around 320,000 people from a range of demographics by advertising with The Courtyard. We can be very flexible and arrange plans which suit your organisation. Here are some examples of our advertising options:

 

TICKET WALLET (ANNUAL)

The Courtyard ticket wallets are a neat and compact way to keep tickets safe. They may be mailed out to customers or issued over the Box Office counter for future shows. Designed to fit easily into pockets, handbags and jackets, as well as being posted out to customers, its unique fold-out design has 12-14 spaces for high-level advertising promotion. And, there’s the added advantage that each design is in use for 12 months.

 

PLASMA SCREENS

Catch the busy footfall of over 320,000 people each year in our building by advertising on our eye-catching screens. We have various screens located in our Café Bar area, and premium portrait screens at Box Office. These show an interesting mix of performance and venue information as well as offering advertising opportunities for local businesses.

 

DIGITAL – EMAIL ADVERTISING

We send email shots to up to 25,000 people each week promoting various upcoming events. Capture this audience by having your advert added to mailshots over a set period ranging from one week to a month. This reaches a wide demographic of ages and backgrounds, with genres including music, drama, comedy, dance and film.

 

SHOW PROGRAMMES

We produce several show programmes a year including Pantomime, Youth Theatre and In House Productions such as Wizard of Oz in 2019. These are designed to a high standard and reflect the overall design for the production. The shelf life of our programmes is longer than much other print in Herefordshire due to their souvenir value. Adverts can be quarter, half or full page. Business Supporters Club members receive 10% discount for programme advertisements.

 

SEASON BROCHURE

The premium outside back cover of our main season brochure is available each season. This is the only commercial advertising in the brochure and offers a stand-out opportunity and guarantees high visibility. The brochures are seen by both regular Courtyard attendees and the wider general public. 17,000 season brochures are printed, of which 8,500 are mailed directly to households, and 8,500 distributed widely across Herefordshire and beyond.

 

ENCORE AND NEWSLETTER MAGAZINE

Communicate with over 1,100 of our core supporters via our seasonal membership magazine, published three times a year – March, July, November. Advertising through our magazine is extremely targeted and reaches an older, discerning audience known to be supportive of local products and services.

 

VENUE SIGNAGE

Annual contracts are available for A4 ad spaces within the Men’s, Ladies and Accessible facilities. We also have A3 advertising spaces in the Media Suite situated on ground floor foyer. An annual contract is also available for the large panel at the far end of the porch exit into the carpark by the Café Bar.
