We are a long running amateur dramatic club (70 years in 2019) and have a loyal following, gaining new interest with each production.  We put on 4 different shows per year, normally with 3 shows per run.  Ticket sales are generally strong and the Vernon Theatre has seating for an audience of 120.  We may be a little biased but we do think we put on some of the best amateur theatre locally!


Of course, having our own theatre and keeping it maintained, is a costly business! We are very resourceful with props, sets and costumes but each production costs around £300 to stage. Happily we have, recently, been successful in obtaining sponsorship from various local businesses helping enormously with our finances.


For sponsorship of a show we ask for £300 to cover our production costs and offer, in return, full promotion of the sponsor through our various marketing activities


In return for sponsorship we offer:

  • A full page advertisement (A5) in our programme.  This can be designed by the sponsor, or we can create an advert if they’d prefer.

  • An acknowledgement of their contribution on our poster for the show.

  • Inclusion of the sponsors' details where we advertise our shows on a range of web sites and social media including Facebook and Twitter and in local publications such as the 'Ashurst Parish Magazine' and the Lyndhurst 'What's On'.

  • Sending a copy of the poster to our email list of local supporters and members (currently around 150 email addresses).


If you are interested in discussing sponsorship of a future production please email lyndhurstdrama@icloud.com or phone Richard (our current Secretary) on 023 8029 2531
