supporting our work
Every year, financial pressures mean that some students of great promise face the prospect of turning down their place in Youth Theatre or leave a class midterm. In difficult situations, BIGLITTLE can offer some support, but not to everyone who needs it.
In February 2019, we launched our new Patron Scheme. By becoming a BIGLITTLE Patron, you will help to ensure that we can offer bursaries to extraordinarily gifted young students and help them on their journey to fulfil their true potential as a performer. *
BIGLITTLE is a 'not for profit' organisation – any financial surplus generated as a result of class fees is ploughed back into the school to help us meet our objectives and to keep enhancing production opportunities for the students. Revenue generated through Patron support will allow us to offer more opportunities to students where financially, this wouldn’t be viable otherwise.
As from 1st February 2019, we are inviting people to sign up to become a Patron of BIGLITTLE Theatre School and to help us to continue to support students who may not otherwise be able to without a bursary. There will be two levels of Patron support. You can become a supporter of the school for just £35. This money will be put into a pot to help support and fund students, whom without this, would not be able to fund their place at BIGLITTLE. As a supporter, you have the option to be listed on our website.
Our second package is a Gold Patron package. This is £230 for the year and includes 2 tickets to our Youth Theatre showcases and 2 tickets to Broadway Showtunes.
We are also launching our new Corporate Patron packages which start from just £250 up to £1500 and including various forms of advertising, depending on the type of package taken.
We are very grateful to our current patrons:
