This is a wonderful opportunity for you to personally support the development and career of young artists and emerging stars as part of the 2023 Festival. Every sponsor will have the opportunity to meet up with their artist at or before the Festival this summer and will be a named sponsor in both our printed programme and on our website. They will follow them as they prepare for their role, on or off the stage, this summer at Waterperry; having special behind-the-scenes access to productions as they develop. Finally, sponsors also receive a thank-you note and signed production photograph.
Sponsoring A Principal Artist
We have a list of wonderful principal artists open for sponsorship this summer. In the case of singers, your generosity will help pay for coachings with Head of Music Ashley Beauchamp and Festival Music Director Bertie Baigent, while also contributing to the artist’s performance fee. Our Principal Artists are some of the UK's most exciting emerging singers and creatives – with a role at Waterperry a vital step in forging their career. Principal Artist Sponsors will be invited to attend rehearsals in London, as well as dress rehearsals at Waterperry, with an opportunity to meet performers backstage either in the interval or afterwards. For those wanting to sponsor a director or conductor, they will have the chance to meet to discuss the artist’s ideas in preparation for rehearsals.

Sponsoring A Young Artist
All our 2023 Young Artist Programme Participants are available for sponsorship. Find out more here: 2023 Young Artists. Your generosity will help fund a wide range of development opportunities in the YA Programme this summer. These include the Young Artist Gala, a masterclass with an internationally-renowned opera singer, video recording of an aria, singing lessons and coachings, workshops in movement, acting and audition skills, as well as development sessions in CV building, tax advice and self-production. All our Young Artists leave with new professional headshots and production photography to add to their portfolios. Your sponsorship would also help us provide travel, food, accommodation and subsistence to ensure participation in the Programme is open to everyone. Sponsors will be invited to attend Young Artist rehearsals in London, and the masterclass free of charge.
