Sponsorship advice?

Hello everyone,

I just wondered if anyone could suggest the best way to attract and request sponsors for our children's shows? This year we have done a relatively small scale production but hoping to increase this next year and a little extra budget would be nice?

How Powerful is a Piece of Paper?

Paper, paper everywhere. On the walls, in books, in forests. Words printed on paper which make us feel and think and take action or just - stop. Pictures and images which portray emotion. Yet can a piece of paper with ink on it change our lives? It sure can. This infuriates me. Our choices should be free and not limited due to ink on paper. I could be choosing French and drama  as GCSEs but because they're in the same column on a…

Young Critic's Review - HIDE


Created by Deborah Light

Chapter Arts Centre, Studio

22nd Feb 2013


When confronted by a naked, giggling woman as you walk into the theatre you know the show you are about to see is either going to be attention-seeking or daring.  Deborah Light’s innovative first full length piece of course fell into the latter category – original and thought provoking.

With a cast of world-renowned female…
