WT relies completely on volunteers to manage, run, and present our productions every year, and we’re entirely self-funded. We don’t receive any funding from the government or arts charities, so we always welcome any donations or sponsorship from our patrons, local businesses, or beyond.
To find out more about corporate sponsorship, including opportunities for naming rights, programme advertising, screen advertising, or any other ideas you may be interested in, please email our fundraising manager.
For our current donation and sponsorship schemes, please see more below.
WT’s membership is by far its biggest asset. As well as those members on stage, our volunteers do everything from staffing the bar, to lighting the shows, even running the website, so there’s always an opportunity to get involved with WT.
To help cover the cost of our brand new, expanded, auditorium seating, we are offering the chance to ‘sponsor’ a seat, with your name on a plaque on the seat of your choice!
Our seat sponsorship costs just £350, and can be purchased for yourself, a family member, even an organisation.
As we undertake development work to our building to provide new, expanded facilities for our members and audiences, you may want to consider ‘sponsoring a brick’. Our brick sponsors will be listed on a plaque in the newly-designed foyer when the theatre reopens in 2021.
Brick sponsorship is just £100, and we’re still welcoming donations.
If you’d like to make a one-off donation, a regular donation, or would like to discuss leaving a gift to Wokingham Theatre in your will, please reach out to our fundraising manager for more information.
