Advertising opportunities at Stafford Festival Shakespeare 2017

Stafford Gatehouse Theatre is offering local businesses the chance to showcase at one of Europe’s largest open-air Shakespeare productions, with advertising opportunities available during this summer’s Stafford Festival Shakespeare production of The Tempest.

Stafford Festival Shakespeare annually attracts up to 16,000 people from across Staffordshire, the West Midlands and beyond, in addition to the Stafford Castle’s Summer Sunday event, which attracts up to 6,000 visitors.

This year businesses can take advantage of space on-site at Stafford Castle for advertising banners (1 metre high by 2 metres wide), for just £250. These will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and are expected to be very popular. The banners will be on display for the entirety of the 18 day run (SFS 22nd June – 8th July and Stafford Castle’s Summer Sunday 9th July).

All spaces must be booked by Friday 9th June.

As well as this, there is also the opportunity to advertise in the souvenir programme for this year’s production of The Tempest. The programmes are A4 full colour, with full page, half page and quarter page spaces available. The programmes are read by the whole family and have a great shelf life as souvenirs.

Advertising rates are as follows:
Full page £400
Half page £250
Quarter page £125

Again, space is being allocated on a first come first served basis, with the deadline to confirm Friday 29th April and the artwork deadline Friday 19th May.

If you would like to book advertising space at SFS 2017, or have any questions, please contact the Gatehouse Theatre’s Press and Marketing Officer Tom Waldron on 01785 619080 or via email twaldron@staffordbc.gov.uk
