Lancaster House sponsors Dukes Theatre in 2024

Lancaster House Hotel has announced a new sponsorship deal with The Dukes theatre to support events and performances throughout 2024.



Alice In Wonderland

The focal point of the latest sponsorship deal is the hotel’s backing of the summer extravaganza, The Dukes Park Show.  This year’s outdoor performance in the grounds of Williamson Park is Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic, Alice In Wonderland.

The hotel has also reserved 20 tickets as part of an exclusive VIP event it is putting on with pre-show canapés for the show. These tickets will include an exclusive meet and greet with the actors and a backstage tour to give participants an insight into how the behind the scenes of the theatre world work.

As part of The Dukes ‘Community Connector’ sponsorship in 2024, Lancaster House Hotel is getting more involved with this year’s Yuletide festivities, as well as providing support for theatre and art activities delivered for the local community.

The hotel has secured 30 tickets for the Christmas show to give a group of local school children free attendance to the festive performance.  As part of the package, the venue will also be laying on a Santa’s Christmas dinner and disco for the children, as well as transport to and from the theatre.

70% of the sponsorship package is being provided through English Lakes Hotels Sam’s Club charity which supports local charities and good causes.

There are some extra innovative elements to the hotel’s involvement with the Dukes this year too.  Lancaster House is sponsoring three school workshops with an artist, where classes of up to 30 young people will take part in creative sessions connected to the Dukes’ production of Alice In Wonderland.

The hotel will also be working with the Dukes Young Carers group to organise a trip to Low Wood Bay Watersports Centre on the shores of Windermere for a big day out of thrills and spills on the water.

And the hotel’s team will also offer their services to the school selected for the complimentary tickets to assist with appropriate site maintenance work.

"We’re keen to maintain our working relationship with the Dukes this year.  It continues to be an inspiring cultural hub for theatre, cinema and art in Lancaster’s local communities and across Lancashire as a whole. “The aim of our sponsorship is to make a difference to the lives of young people and their families by giving them free access to some brilliant cultural experiences and learning opportunities."
