Birmingham Royal Ballet presents corporate members with commemorative gifts

Birmingham Royal Ballet (BRB) has gifted each of their corporate members a framed production photograph to mark the start of the 2018/19 Beyond Words season, commencing in September 2018. The season will see 11 productions, 13 venues and 159 performances in a year of bold creations and classic stories. 

Featuring a selection of productions from across BRB’s 111-ballet repertoire, the photographs serve as a celebration of the company’s wonderful business sector relationships, and as a thank you for continuing corporate support.

Autumn Evans, Corporate Partnerships Executive at BRB, says: ‘Summer 2019 will see David Bintley, our Director of 24 years, retire from the company so we are making this a season to remember for everyone within the BRB family, including our corporate members who make our artistic and charitable work possible.’ 

On receiving the photograph, Eamon Mooney, Partner at Kennedys Law says: ‘Our new frame is marvellous – it just reinforces how pleased we are to have become a new corporate member of Birmingham Royal Ballet this year.’

The production photograph is now a permanent fixture in the BRB corporate membership package. Birmingham Royal Ballet corporate members also receive tickets for opening nights and performances throughout the season, an advertisement in each souvenir programme and a corporate dinner held in a private suite at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

No5 Barristers Chambers became corporate members of BRB in early 2018. Tony McDaid, Chief Executive and Director of Clerking, says of the new partnership: ‘We are delighted to support Birmingham Royal Ballet and have had a very positive response from our members and clients. The reputation of BRB as the most creative and versatile touring classical ballet company is something we are extremely proud to be associated with.’

Long-standing BRB corporate members Savills add: ‘Birmingham Royal Ballet is one of the icons of the city, helping to give our city its growing cultural identity. Savills has been committed as a corporate member for the last 7 years and we are delighted to be able to maintain our support.’

BRB extends its thanks to all of its corporate members: B E Wedge, Charles Stanley, Forresters, Kennedys Law, Leaping Man Group, No5 Barristers, Price Pearson (Taxwise), Savills, Scrivens and S&U PLC.
