Business Sponsorship

Your business can help make a huge difference to local communities, from a small donation to a major partnership. We'd love to hear from you with any ideas you have.

Watermans is the major arts centre in West London, cited as a local gem and highly valued by the community. We consistently deliver a high-quality programme that seeks to engage all parts of the community, to entertain and inspire everyone whatever their background.

We run as both a commercial and social enterprise. We have much success achieving commercial income, but in order to reach the widest audiences, it is critical that we are funded from other sources. We are constantly looking to build relationships with businesses who want to invest in local communities. Your budget may stretch from a few hundred to several thousand pounds: whichever it is, we are delighted to talk about how we might work together.

Here are some ways you can support us:

Business Membership

For a small investment, give your employees a really generous benefit and be recognised on our website as a supporter of Watermans. Business membership gives employees significant discounts on tickets, such as £6 cinema tickets at any time, discounted children’s theatre tickets and more.

Companies like GSK have found that this is a popular benefit with their employees.


Become a local hero. Arts sponsorship is a tried and tested method of improving brand recognition and developing brand values. We have a broad local reach with over 200,000 visitors a year and high brand loyalty. We would love to work with your business, whether that’s to achieve social responsibility goals, raise your profile, trial your product or something else.

Please contact us to discuss opportunities, from sponsoring our popular children’s programme to being part of a specific event like a weekend festival.
