Corporate Support


Our corporate supporters play a vital part in helping us to carry out our work. We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to be one of them!

Does your business nominate a Charity of the Year? Do you have a community fund or charitable trust?  Do you proactively engage your staff in fundraising activities as a team?

Whatever your CSR strategy, your support would make a huge difference in enabling us to make theatre more accessible to disadvantaged groups and helping us to empower and enrich young people’s lives, learning experiences and employability.

How you can help:

  • Choose Mousetrap as your Charity of the Year

  • Help to fund one of our projects or programmes

  • Organise some fundraising activities and donate the proceeds to Mousetrap

  • Donate a percentage of your sales

  • Offer some in-kind support

Current Sponsorship Opportunities


Go Live Theatre Club

We’re currently seeking a new primary sponsor for Go Live: our independent theatregoing club for young people aged 15-24. There are various other sponsorship opportunities available too.

We’d also love to hear from local restaurants and cafes who would be willing to offer sponsorship in-kind by way of special discounts on food and drink. With your support, we can help to make their theatregoing experience as affordable as possible.
