  • Will you put my show in the programme or on the website?

    Unfortunately since we have so many programmed shows we are unable to offer any advertising for Theatre Hires; this means we cannot offer space in the programme, distribution or poster space.

    When considering putting on a show, you should consider how you will advertise your production, who your audience is and how to let them know about it.

  • Can you offer a charity rate?

    As Jacksons Lane is itself a charity – we are unable to guarantee discounts to other charities or non profit organisations.

  • Where can I find out more?
