As a charitable organisation that relies heavily on ticket sales, the current situation will naturally have a devastating financial impact for Wiltshire Creative.  Help us to support actors, artists, freelancers and theatre staff who will face hardship due to the current closure.  We need your support now more than ever, so that when doors can open again we can continue to offer a full range of arts, entertainment and cultural activities.  Your donations would be hugely appreciated and help us get back to creatively serving our community as soon as we can. Thank you.

The Trustees, Executives and all staff at Wiltshire Creative

Wiltshire Creative is vital to the local community and delivers a measurable social, economic and environmental impact. With two thirds of our audiences, and participants for our artistic and community programmes coming from outside of Salisbury, our reach is much wider than the local economy. 

As a registered charity, community and business relationships are essential to us. We have a wealth of brand awareness and hospitality opportunities and we are keen to foster relationships that will enable businesses to enhance their commercial objectives and implement their corporate social responsibility strategies.

Through our festivals and two venues, we welcome audiences of over 250,000 to see our work every year. Our active social media platforms reach over 45,000 people and printed materials reach a further 100,000. We also enjoy a loyal membership of over 1,000 people who actively engage with and financially support our work.

Wiltshire Creative has a wide range of partnership packages so that businesses of all sizes can support and engage in a diverse range of arts, culture and education and help to enrich our local and wider community. Through our extensive networks and creative marketing and PR campaigns we are placing Salisbury and Wiltshire on the national and international stage, raising the profile of the South West and reaching new customers, clients and future employees for our sponsors.

We are keen to engage new strategic partnerships and sponsorship at all levels so please contact us.
