Corporate Support


We appreciate how invaluable public minded companies are to the arts, indeed, without the generous support from business many of the classical performances and exhibitions we all enjoy would simply not be possible. Opera South is no exception for the need for corporate sponsors. We warmly welcome support from the business world and would be pleased to send you our information pack or to meet with you to discuss how your company can become involved.

Larger sponsors will not only benefit from the knowledge that they have positively contributed to your local charity Opera company’s aims but also derive access to further unusual benefits for an additional cost. There are of course valuable tax incentives too for your giving too as well as the appreciation from your staff and customers for your involvement.

Email to receive the Corporate Sponsors Information pack or to request a call back to discuss how your company can get involved.


Whilst donating “hard cash” is always welcome, there are lots of other ways that your business may be able to become involved. The possibilities are as large as your imagination and generosity!

Are you….

a local florist or interior design business that can provide flowers or items for use on stage?

a wine shop or caterer who can offer complimentary or great prices for our food and wine at events?

a beautician or hairdresser or fabric shop who might be able to help with make up, hair or costumes?

a printer who could print some literature free of charge?


Could you promote our events in your newsletters, magazines, e-zine or blog?

Have you got a sample of your product you could give to us to raffle or auction? A special cake? A delicious bottle of wine? A spa treatment? An overnight stay at your hotel or a dinner for two at your pub?

Could you simply please take some of our leaflets and a poster to put up on your premises so that more of your customers get to know Opera South in our region?

If you have an idea of how your local business can provide assistance in return for publicity, to impress your customers and your staff or just because you think it’s a good idea, then we really want to hear from you!

Please contact


Sponsorship opportunities for individual soloists will be made available once they are announced. Your company will be acknowledged on our website, will appear in our programme for the event and your sponsorship will be announced at the event and will receive a signed picture of the individual soloist for display at your business premises. The minimum corporate contribution for a soloist is £500.  If you would like to put your company’s name down in advance to be personally notified as soon as a soloist is selected, please email

Mark Austin


We are extremely fortunate to have Mark Austin as our Musical Director. His thoughtful input into our new programme of events and his huge musical talent is what makes it possible for Opera South to continue to provide the highest level of performance. Young talented soloists and the musicians of The Faust Chamber Orchestra who work with him benefit hugely from this experience, as indeed do our audiences.

However, as a young man with an ever more promising career ahead of him, we are searching a sponsor or sponsors to support his work for Opera South. If you personally, or your company would like to discuss the possibility of becoming our Musical Director’s Patron, or shared patron, please email

Sponsors for the soloists and the Patron(s) of our Musical Director will be acknowledged on the website, in the programme and announced at events and be invited to all performances as VIP guests. (The number of guests your company can bring will vary according to the package selected).
