Funding for Side by Side

Funding is vital to ensure the continuing success of Side by Side. The costs involved in just running the group from week to week as well putting on our productions means we are constantly seeking to attract more financial support. The company receives no regular income, government support or grants, so contributions are particularly valuable in ensuring our weekly operations. A great way for you to help is to become a 'Friend' or a 'Sponsor' of the company, or to simply Donate to us when you can.


Become a Sponsor

The Sponsorship programme offers organisations and individuals a range of benefits, dependent on their contribution. Sponsorship is usually set around £1,000. That figure is negotiable, as what helps us most is a long-term commitment.

The benefits to you can expect include:

  • Acknowledgement in the main show programme.

  • Free tickets to the annual show and VIP reception.

  • Your organisation's name featured prominently on our website and marketing materials as a major supporter.

  • Side by Side shows attract a lot of publicity, where appropriate we ensure our sponsors are associated with our activities.

Meet Our Friends

Be a part of the fun you see on stage by sponsoring one of our new cast members. We have eight new faces to introduce. Click on a picture below to find out a little more about them and the companies that have sponsored them. If you know of a local business that would like to offer some support to a very worthwhile local charity then please get in touch. Your company or business could be involved in our very next production.

Make A Donation

We could not continue to do what we do without the very generous public doing what they do. We are grateful for each and every donation, no matter how big or small. If you would like to contribute then there are several ways that you can donate.


  • By cash at one of our shows or community events. Look out for the Side by Side collection tins as you dance your way out of the theatre.

  • By standing order. Paying your donation by standing order saves administration costs and the need to remember to renew or re-sponsor each year. To set up a standing order please contact the Treasurer above.
