Exeter Northcott Theatre is delighted to announce that law firm Browne Jacobson has renewed its sponsorship with the theatre for a second year.

The year-long sponsorship agreement with the national firm which has an office in Exeter will make a valuable contribution to the theatre.

Exeter Northcott Theatre’s Chair of the Board of Trustees Lady Studholme said:

“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Browne Jacobson over the last year and are pleased that they have agreed to continue their sponsorship of the Theatre for a further year.

The Exeter Northcott is undergoing an exciting transformation, both bringing and producing a wide range of outstanding performances to a wide range of audiences. Sharing this with support from the local business community plays an important part in ensuring we deliver productions of the highest quality, and also to continue and develop the valuable work we do with schools and community groups.”

Browne Jacobson is a national law firm with offices in five major UK cities, including Exeter. Earlier this year the firm announced a 17% increase in turnover to a record £58.9 million. The firm’s Exeter office, which was opened in 2012, saw turnover grow by 40% with its education team posting 16% growth.

Mark Fowles, partner at Browne Jacobson’s Exeter office added:

“We are delighted to announce our continued sponsorship of Exeter Northcott for a further 12 months.

“We are committed to investing in organisations and initiatives that deliver tangible benefits to the local community.

“From a business perspective it has been a successful partnership and I am sure that our clients will look forward to the theatre’s forthcoming season which is, once again, packed with an array of fantastic productions.”
