Border Archaeology lay foundations with The Courtyard

In celebration of its 20th anniversary and a long-standing commitment to supporting local arts provision, Border Archaeology is delighted to announce its sponsorship of The Courtyard’s 2017/18 programme of Royal Shakespeare Company and Royal Opera House live screenings.

The Courtyard offers a wide range of Live Screenings which provide an opportunity for audience members to experience live stage productions here in Hereford. This season’s offering includes The Nutcracker (Tues 5 & Sun 10 Dec) and Tosca (Tue 13 Feb) from the Royal Opera House and Twelfth Night (Sat 17 Feb) from the RSC.

Border’s Marketing Director, Rachel Cropper, says:

“With our head office in Leominster and many of our staff living locally in Herefordshire, supporting the Courtyard strongly resonates. Aligning our brand with the Courtyard reflects a shared mission to embrace and promote the nation’s rich cultural heritage.”

The Courtyard’s Fundraising Manager, Melanie Denning, says “We were delighted when Border Archaeology approached us to support our screenings of this season’s RSC and ROH productions. With Border’s work protecting our heritage and The Courtyard’s commitment to providing a rich cultural programme in Herefordshire, the sponsorship seemed a perfect match.”
