Ropetackle Business Friends Shoreham

Shoreham’s multi-award winning Ropetackle Arts Centre celebrates its 10th anniversary by launching a Business Friends’ scheme.

This exciting new project offers local businesses – along with those from further afield – the opportunity to share in our centre’s remarkable success.

Who we are

Ropetackle is a community-owned charity, run by a board of unpaid trustees and some 80 volunteers, supported by a small professional team. They all share a combined passion for the community and the arts, and dedication to the centre’s continued success.

Over the past 10 years, Ropetackle has established itself as one of the most vibrant and distinctive arts venues in the region, combining its programme of top level arts and entertainment with a rich and diverse mixture of community activities.

What we do

From jazz festivals to comedy nights, classical music to rock, spoken word to film, Ropetackle has something for everybody and aims to appeal to all sectors of the community and people from all walks of life.

With a 200-seat auditorium (350 standing), a spacious foyer and 40 capacity mezzanine, Ropetackle is ideal for a wide range of activities, meetings, conferences and exhibitions, which run alongside our arts and educational programmes.

Attracting audiences of around 30,000 per year, Ropetackle runs a Friends’ scheme supported by 750 members, and a mailing list of 15,000+ subscribers. It also benefits from wide support from a large number of other users and visitors.

Ropetackle plays a unique and established role at the heart of the community as well as being a hugely valued contributor to the local economy and a principal amenity asset.

By joining our Business Friends scheme, you can be part of Ropetackle’s remarkable story. Benefits include:

There is also the opportunity to become actively involved – following the example of Pembroke Financial Services.
“We wanted to give something back to the local community who support us as a Business and as a ‘home’. Ropetackle gives great joy to the community and the fact that the place operates almost entirely by virtue of volunteers who work so hard, made it the perfect choice for us as a ‘community partner’.  Becoming a sponsor of Ropetackle has had a remarkable effect on our business both in terms of brand awareness, new business opportunities, and our reputation for being actively engaged in the local community.” ~ Keith Relf (MD)
