The Watermill Theatre and Savills renew sponsorship agreement

Savills in Newbury have renewed their sponsorship of The Watermill Theatre’s e-tickets for the third year. 

E-tickets are part of the Theatres wider effort to improve their environmental footprint. This includes recycling sets by loaning/giving them to other theatre companies or reusing set elements in its own productions. Also investing in more efficient lighting across the site and a recent project to restore a section of the riverbank which had been eroded away.

With audiences increasing their awareness and understanding of the importance of sustainability, 70% of tickets are already provided digitally. 

Claire Murray, Joint Chief Executive said “We’re delighted that Savills has continued its sponsorship of our e-tickets. It’s brilliant to be able to raise awareness of the ways that we can all reduce our environmental impact – e-ticketing is such an easy option for customers and makes a real difference. 

The Savills team has also been incredible in supporting us to make improvements to the site and buildings – this year helping to redecorate our rehearsal room which was in need of a spruce up!” 

Deborah Giacobbi, Head of Residential at Savills Newbury, said “We are very pleased to support the fantastic Watermill Theatre, which is an iconic landmark in Berkshire with a long-standing history in the community.

As a business, Savills is committed to achieving net zero carbon in its operation by 2030 and we are keen to support the theatre’s own environmental ambitions by sponsoring this sustainable initiative.”
