Covers renews sponsorship of Chichester Festival Theatre

Covers will be continuing its sponsorship of Chichester Festival Theatre for a sixth consecutive year.


As a Silver Principal Partner, the independent builders’ merchant, which has its headquarters on Quarry Lane, will appear in production programmes and brochures for shows being staged throughout the Theatre’s Festival 2019 and winter seasons. Covers will also be a lead production sponsor for The Butterfly Lion, a new stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s magical adventure for all the family, running in the Minerva Theatre from 5th October to 9th November.


Commenting on the sponsorship, Henry Green, Managing Director at Covers, said:


“Chichester Festival Theatre is an incredibly important part of the performing arts culture and our city’s heritage. We are delighted to be continuing to support this iconic venue.”


Rosie Hiles, Corporate Development Manager at Chichester Festival Theatre, added:


“We are thrilled to be continuing our partnership with Covers this year and are proud to work with such an established local company. Our corporate supporters play a vital role in all we do here and are very much part of the fabric of CFT. Their generosity allows us to expand our outreach work in the local community and contributes to the quality of our productions on stage. Simply, we couldn’t do what we do without them.”
