Chichester Festival Theatre and Chichester-based estate agents Henry Adams are celebrating 25 consecutive years of sponsorship with this summer’s production of Oklahoma!

Henry Adams has been one of the key sponsors of CFT’s productions every year since 1994, not long after the estate agency first opened its doors back in 1992. 

Richard Williscroft, Chairman of Henry Adams LLP, said, 'It’s hard to believe that a quarter of a century has sped by since we first struck up a partnership to become sponsors of Chichester Festival Theatre. Over the years, the calibre of their innovative and critically acclaimed productions has always been outstanding. We’re very proud to be associated with such a world-class organisation which we’re lucky enough to have here on our doorstep. 

'This year marks a milestone celebration of Henry Adams’s sponsorship of the Festival Theatre’s productions for the past 25 years, especially their summer musicals with which we’ve been associated for 12 years, but we’re also looking forward to the future together, starting with this summer’s production of Oklahoma! which once again brings first class live entertainment to the heart of Chichester.'

Rosie Hiles, Corporate Development Manager at Chichester Festival Theatre, added: ‘Our long and valued relationship with Henry Adams is a perfect example of the mutual benefits, not to mention friendship and support, that a successful corporate partnership can bring: aligning businesses with artistic excellence and maximising return on investment. 

“Our production sponsors help us maintain our reputation for world-class productions and keep ticket prices accessible so that audiences from across the community can enjoy them to the full. We are enormously grateful to Henry Adams for their sterling commitment and wish them a very happy anniversary!’
