#AnACE2017 – Business Buddies!

As the chaos of Christmas begins to subside and 2018 rapidly approaches, we thought we would take some time to look back over some highlights of our Courtyard year. Today we say thank you to all of the business which help us throughout the year!

At The Courtyard we are very fortunate to have the support of countless local businesses throughout the county. Our corporate relationships are hugely important to us whether the business is sponsoring an in house production, joining our Business Club or just generally lending a hand when they can – it is all hugely appreciated!

Here are a few businesses that have supported The Courtyard’s work in 2017 with show sponsorship:


Cargill – Sleeping Beauty

Cotswold Hereford MINI – Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass

Rotherwood Healthcare – Pride & Prejudice

Kidwells – Little Red Riding Hood

Western Power Distribution – Herefordshire’s Family Festival

Stirling of Hereford – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

MINI ran a competition to illustrate a car for Alice in Wonderland this year!

This year has also seen Hereford Cathedral School come on board as a new sponsor for our long running Family Saturdays programme whilst Border Archaeology are now sponsoring our RSC and ROH live screenings alongside GABBS Solicitors who currently support MET Opera Screenings. And for our comedy fans, Heineken have remained as show sponsor for our Friday night Comedy Clubs!

Melanie Denning, Fundraising Manager, says: “The Courtyard is lucky to have some really great sponsors, many of which like Cargill, Heineken, MINI and Rotherwood Healthcare, have supported us for many years. Our sponsors understand the importance of investing in arts projects and the venue for the good of the whole community. We couldn’t do it without them and we want them to know how much we appreciate their investment!”
