The Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds is celebrating its supporters who keep the historic venue running.

The theatre’s many sponsors contribute up to £50,000 towards the community playhouse’s funding.

Head of development at the theatre, Julia Read, said: “We currently have 14 business sponsors supporting the theatre in this financial year and they do so in a number of ways.

“This can range from sponsoring a specific show, having their name on their own box, sponsoring our ticket wallets, or sponsoring a whole season – our current autumn season is sponsored by Beckett.

“The financial support and endorsement that these companies give the Theatre Royal is very precious.

Myself and my deputy have even agreed to complete a charity skydive next month in aid of the Theatre Royal.”

In response, Julia said: “Asking our sponsors to chuck themselves out of a plane at 13,000ft seems a bit much but I’m so delighted that Benjamin is going to do it, that means a great deal.

“Our business partners are very special to us and much respected, not only by us, but by our audiences who appreciate the support they give the theatre.”
