Corporate support

Corporate Support

Support from corporate partners allows Northern Ballet to continue to thrive artistically and to create world-class and ground-breaking new productions, whilst working towards realising a vision where ballet is accessible to all.

Partnering with Northern Ballet

All our partnerships and sponsorship packages are individually tailored to suit your business and we believe in delivering a personal service. As a partner, your company will gain access to an exclusive range of marketing, brand and performance benefits and opportunities to best meet your organisational needs and objectives.


As a corporate supporter of Northern Ballet, your company will be promoted as such across our national production tours. Our repertoire tours extensively throughout the UK, with performances accompanied by outreach and education activities in the theatres. Promotional benefits can include branding on all publicity associated with Northern Ballet productions, branding on our website and national tour programmes, jointly agreed PR and promotional opportunities, and publicity events featuring Northern Ballet’s dancers.


Northern Ballet can offer unique hospitality for your clients and staff at our performances. This includes best-seat tickets, private hospitality areas, opportunities for your guests to meet the dancers after the performance, and an introduction to the ballet from a member of our Artistic Team.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Partnering with Northern Ballet can help you to meet your CSR objectives, giving your company the opportunity to make a difference to the lives of thousands of young people, and enable your community to experience the wonder of dance. Much of Northern Ballet’s learning and outreach work provides opportunities for your company to align your brand with this area of our activity, and forthcoming projects currently seeking support include our START Schools and Hospice projects; In Motion, our unique programme for self-propelling wheelchair users; Ability, our course designed for adults with learning disabilities; and our audio descriptions and access days. With sponsorship of Northern Ballet’s outreach work, you will have the opportunity to engage with participants, as well as offer your staff the chance to volunteer at Northern Ballet and to help out with our projects.
