Marketing & Publicity

Included in your booking is inclusion on the theatre’s website and social media pages. We ask that companies supply an image to be used (landscape & portrait orientation) and a blurb about your show or event. However, we do ask companies to provide printed materials for their show/event and deliver these to the theatre.

We would ask that all companies include the theatre’s logo on their printed material and this can be downloaded here. We would also suggest that a QR code is printed directly onto your posters that will link directly to your ticket sales. (This will be supplied by the theatre once your tickets have gone on sale.)

We would suggest the following quantities of printed media in portrait orientation.

B2 x 10 – These will be placed in the North Somerset Council Boards around Weston-super-Mare & Clevedon.

A3 x 5 – These will be displayed in our foyer notice boards.

A4 x 25 – These will be displayed in our Weston-super-Mare Town Council Noticeboards around the town as well as outside, within the theatre, within Weston Museum and our other sister sites.

A5 x min. 100 – Flyers: these will be used mainly within the theatre foyer, but we also exit flyer with these at the end of shows and distribute some to Weston Museum for display in Clara’s Café.

If you have any concerns or would like to talk more about advertising your event please do speak to us.
