The company puts on multiple shows and showcases annually in venues across North Wales including specific relaxed performances ensuring the productions are as inclusive as possible for audiences

Key Dates and Timings

The event requiring sponsorship is the adult production of Calendar Girls taking place on July 13th, 14th, and 15th 2023 at Theatr Colwyn, Colwyn Bay.

This is a particularly special performance as we are raising money for Ysbyty Glan Clwyd Hospital’s (YGC) cancer centre, MacMillan cancer support, a cold cap machine for patients receiving chemotherapy, as well as other local causes.

In order to put on our show we rely on generous support through local sponsorship and fundraising.

Any sponsorship received will be put towards items such as theatre hire, microphone hire, set hire, marketing etc. to enable us to put on the best performance, whilst raising money for such worthy causes.

Calendar Girls is based on the true story of a group of courageous women from a Women’s Institute (WI) who raised money for a settee in their local cancer centre in memory of a loved one. They achieved their fundraising by posing for a nude calendar!
