Barclays And The Donmar Warehouse Celebrate 10 Years of Partnership

Barclays is celebrating ten years as Principal Sponsor of the Donmar Warehouse. The bank’s partnership with the Covent Garden-based powerhouse has supported key business priorities across a wide and diverse stakeholder base including clients and staff, and has offered essential funding to the core operations of the Donmar, supporting its award-winning work as well as its robust education and outreach initiatives.

Over the past decade of support, Barclays has funded 88 productions on the famous Covent Garden stage, have founded ground-breaking access initiatives such as Barclays Front Row which provided over 32,000 top price tickets to the theatre for just £10, and also supported the development of education and outreach work with a cornerstone gift to support the development of the theatre’s Donmar Dryden Street facility.

To celebrate this landmark occasion the Donmar and Barclays have created a programme of activation to raise awareness across its base of customers, clients and employees.  Events have included a private performance at the theatre for Barclays staff, a workshop and panel discussion exploring equality and empowerment in the workplace, a partnership film created for social media promotion, and an exclusive drinks offer in partnership with Donmar drinks partner Chapel Down, for Premier Banking customers.
