Support The Marlowe

 

The Marlowe is always grateful for financial support, both from alumni and interested individuals and companies. If you are interested in supporting the society, please contact us at themarlowesociety@gmail.com.

 

In particular, we are interested in finding new sponsors for our annual show at The Arts Theatre, Cambridge. The annual Arts Theatre Show recruits the best student actors and producers each year; with an invited professional Director and Designer, it is a highlight of the theatrical calendar for both students and local citizens as it is the only student production to be performed in the Cambridge Arts Theatre each year. 

 

The Marlowe Society’s main sponsor from 1936 until the 1990s was the Arts Theatre Trust itself, which acted as the society’s producer. It could afford to take risks because Keynes had given it an endowment fund. The last bit of that went in the stock market crash of 1987. An appeal to Old Marlovians in 1992 set up a small endowment fund to pay the fee of the annual director. Not long after that, the Arts Theatre closed for re-building.

 

During those three years the Marlowe was sponsored by the City merchant bankers, Kleinwort Benson, who put up £5,000 a year in return for our arranging an annual dinner for them to meet Cambridge College Bursars. When the Arts Theatre Trust was reconstituted, the Arts ceased to act as producer and the Marlowe had to provide the basic production costs. From 2002-2005 our sponsors were a consortium of the three leading TV production companies: TalkBack, Tiger Aspect and Top Hat. This was organised by Peter Fincham, until he became Controller of BBC2. We are now looking for a successor, and, as such, we are offering 3 levels of sponsorship. Our sponsorship levels are available in any configuration of sponsors, unless a Gold sponsor is found, to whom category exclusivity is offered.
