Sponsorship

“This event is the talk of the town.” The Best of Lichfield 

“Our partnership with Lichfield Garrick in a short period of time has brought personal realisation as to what a wonderful asset to Lichfield the Garrick is.” Andrew Lightbown, General Manager at David Lloyd Health Club Lichfield.

Get in touch to find out more or have a chat about how we can work with your business.

Family Tickets

Thousands of families are lucky enough to enjoy the magic of our pantomime each year, but there are some who have suffered trauma, bereavement or illness meaning they can't attend. Each Christmas, local businesses can sponsor a family of four to attend our pantomime, which will be distributed through our charity partners. This year, there will be even more local families who have experience difficulties during the pandemic, and you can help them forget their troubles at a performance of Jack & The Beanstalk.

Family ticket sponsors are recognised in all press and social media coverage of the scheme, and are invited to the VIP  performance of the pantomime.

FUNDRAISING STATEMENT

Lichfield Garrick Theatre needs to fundraise in order to deliver on its constitution and provide services to the community. This is in addition to revenue raised from ticket sales, catering outlets and commercial hires.

Fundraising is solicited from trusts & foundations, corporate organisations and businesses, and individual donors in line with our Ethical Fundraising Policy and Privacy Policy.

ETHICAL FUNDRAISING POLICY

Lichfield Garrick Theatre aims to fundraise in an open and honest manner. We set the following ethical guidelines within which we are prepared to accept money to meet our fundraising objectives:

  • As a registered charity, we will always adhere to regulations set by the Charity Commission.
  • Funding will only be sought in line with our constitution, objectives and values.
  • We will always report to donors and funders within the specified time frames and maintain an honest and open relationship with our donors.
  • We will not accept money from organisations that have been proven to have undertaken criminal activity. We will never knowingly accept funds from any source that have been gained through criminal activity. If this is discovered after receipt of funds, then we will take steps to resolve this to the best of our ability. We will ensure corporate funders are registered with company’s house and investigate their own trading policies on their website.
  • We will endeavour to assess the ethics and attitudes of each organisation we solicit funds from and will not pursue any fundraising from those that we judge to have acted in an unethical way relating to the nine protected characteristics of the Equality Act or the Environmental Protection Act.
  • We will not accept funds or sponsorship from organisations for which advertising is banned. All sponsors and funders for events will be appropriate for the relevant target audience.
  • Accepting money from any organisation does not align us to their political views.
  • We will always assess the level of risk of accepting funding, donations or sponsorships against the potential benefits and consider how the risk (if any) can be mitigated.
  • We will avoid over-reliance on one or more key donors.
  • Funding will only ever be used and distributed under the terms of our constitution.
