Wolf’s Child: Sponsorship Opportunities

Get your business associated with the UK’s leading producer of landscape theatre.

In 2005 Kneehigh’s Artistic Director, Bill Mitchell, co-produced A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings in Hayle and out of this production WildWorks was born. Since then we have created work in all sorts of places including Kensington Palace and Palestine.

As a registered charity, we are grateful to our public funders Arts Council England and Cornwall Council. Their support is the bedrock of our organisation.

We raise the rest of the money needed to create productions from sponsorship, charitable donations and working on artistic projects for and with other organisations.

This summer we are bringing our internationally acclaimed promenade production Wolf’s Child to the Trelowarren Estate here in Cornwall.

Wolf’s Child is a huge project. It involves local communities, actors, musicians and makers working together during a month-long project. We have a strong track record of delivering artistic excellence with community engagement embedded into the process. We will be looking for up to 80 local volunteers to take part as performers, local craftsman, to be part of a choir or as volunteer stewards.

There will be opportunities for local people of all ages and abilities. People don’t need prior experience to take part. This is an amazing opportunity for people to work with a world class theatre company. But we need sponsorship help to make this happen.

Sponsorship starts at just £250.

In exchange for your help we can offer;

  • Association with a world-class theatre brand
  • Access to an audience in excess of 5,000 in Cornwall
  • Benefits associated with a high profile local and national marketing campaign
  • VIP invitations

There are additional opportunities for bespoke sponsorships including headline sponsor.

Trelowarren is a historic Cornish estate with an established tradition of working with artists and arts organisations. The Wolf Child’s performance will be adapted to showcase Trelowarren’s estate and gardens.  It will be the first time in the estate’s recent history that large audiences will have access to the gardens, opening our grounds more broadly to the local and regional community.


WildWorks has 10 years of experience in delivering large scale outdoor performance projects that involve community engagement. Wolf’s Child was the headlining show at Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2015. It received 5 stars by The Times and was included in Susannah Clapp of the Guardian, top ten shows of 2015.
