The Royal Court welcomes Coutts & Co as new Principal Sponsor
The Royal Court’s long term partnership with Coutts & Co is strengthened this week with the beginning of Coutts & Co’s year long principal sponsorship of the Royal Court Theatre.
Artistic Director of the Royal Court Dominic Cooke said:
“Following their recent support of Get Santa!, it’s exciting to welcome Coutts as the Royal Court’s Principal Sponsor. This year-long partnership celebrates the excellence and vision of both our organisations. We are hugely grateful to Coutts for this support, especially at a time when it is sorely needed.”
Michael Morley, Chief Executive of Coutts said:
“We are delighted to be able to support this award winning theatre and the exciting line up of cutting-edge productions planned. The Royal Court has been described as ‘the UK’s new writing powerhouse’ and it is essential that the country’s creative talents and arts organisations such as this are supported in these difficult times.
Coutts has a long history of supporting the theatre which goes back 200 years and we are very proud to be carrying on this tradition and playing our part in enabling the Royal Court to continue to flourish with its diverse range of ground-breaking performances.”
This is the first time that the Coutts & Co has been the Principal Sponsor of the Royal Court, although the relationship has been ongoing since 2004, with the private bank sponsoring the Royal Court’s 50th anniversary year and most recently its first ever family Christmas show Get Santa!
