Business Partnerships

Work with us to bring joy to your business and our wider community

Shakespeare North Playhouse is a unique new addition to the cultural offer, not just in Knowsley and the Liverpool City Region, but for the North West and nationally.  The design of the building, inside and outside, and the approach to programming opens up lots of exciting ways for businesses to work with us!

We are keen to develop business partnerships with companies that want to align to our brand and benefit from an association with our artistic, talent development and community engagement work to build a collaborative relationship.

We will tailor our business partnerships to suit the needs of each individual company. A bespoke package of exclusive benefits can be created to fit with your business objectives, including client entertainment, tickets, advertising, brand awareness and behind-the-scenes access.

We’d love to hear from you and start a conversation about how we can work together.  Email Claire Will, Director of Marketing and Commercial at [email protected]

Here are some of the ways your business can work with us

Partner with us by sponsoring a particular aspect of our work over several years.

In our opening year, we are at the start of delivering a broad programme of activities aimed at many audiences and markets.   Ideas for major partnership include partnering us in the production of our annual Christmas show or in our volunteer programme.

As a brand-new building with several exciting spaces open to the public, your business can heighten its brand awareness and be connected to the activities taking place in a space that’s associated with your company name.

There are lots of sponsorship opportunities at Shakespeare North Playhouse ranging from performance sponsorship to sponsoring aspects of our work with our communities.

We can offer unique opportunities for your business to partner with us on the projects you are most passionate about, with bespoke packages tailored to you, including profiling and brand association.

Our unique venue has been specifically designed with the needs of the corporate hospitality market in mind. Our fully customisable hospitality packages will enable you to host extraordinary client events and meetings.

We can help you meet your CSR objectives by connecting your company to our Creative Learning and Engagement programme.

Support us in our work with our communities, aimed at inviting them to explore the building and develop a sense of ownership, as well as engage with our productions and programme. The themes will be used to inspire learning and creative opportunities.
