From Old England to New England – Sponsor/Advertising Opportunity

You may have seen the recent press coverage for the Concert John is producing at the Pavilion next Summer – “From Old England to New England”.

It’s a fascinating musical and visual story about the 100+ brave Pioneers who set sail from Weymouth Harbour in 1635 to found the Town of Weymouth in Massachusetts. If not, here is the link from the Dorset Echo:

The Show will be held on 13th June 2022, and John will be producing a 12 page B5 format full colour souvenir brochure that will not just be given free to the audience on the night, but will become part of a commemorative package (together with a video DVD of the Concert, and a separate CD of music from the show which will have the brochure as an add-on)

John is looking to secure reservations for the available advertising space (with payment not due until next April.)

He has attached a link below to a draft layout which is freely available for reference – Mock Up

Potential discounts for those who are happy to pay in Jan/Feb 2022 and John is proposing to add some advertorial text content in the programmes ‘thank you page’ to those who choose to become ‘Official Sponsors’

He has also secured a full page in the April/May print edition of West Dorset Living, which will be promoting the Concert, and has two spaces available on that page that he’s offering gratis to the first two advertisers who commit to take advantage of the Jan/Feb payment offer for the Concert Programme Gold Sponsor Advertising.
