If you are interested in supporting us as a sponsor for 2020 please contact:




The team at BOAT would like to say a massive thank you to the local businesses and volunteers that have sponsored and offered their support to BOAT for the 2019 season. Without your help it simply wouldn’t be possible to manage, run, develop and improve the BOAT, the theatre, its surroundings and the entire outdoor experience.

We are still a young theatre and are working hard to develop and to make BOAT the best it can be. For this we need to be able to invest into the site, the people and the facilities. This is what your help and support is used for. ‘Keeping Adrian’s legacy alive’
