We are delighted to announce that Gloucester based coffee company Ethical Addictions are the new headline sponsor for the theatre’s Friends and Patrons scheme.
We started working together over the summer of last year as the theatre opened its new coffee shop, Cotteswold Coffee @ The Roses as part of its massive million pound make over.
“It’s really important to us at Ethical Addictions that we give a lot back to the communities that we serve. For years now we have helped to make the communities in Africa who supply us with coffee, a secure place to live and work. We thought it was about time that we did something similar back at home in Gloucestershire” Says Ian Meredith, Director of Ethical Addictions.
The Roses Friends and Patrons scheme is a membership scheme run by the theatre which sees frequent audience members receive a host of benefits ranging from discounts on theatre tickets, priority booking, exclusive news letters and invitations to special events to name but a few.
Being a friend of The Roses is so much more than just using the theatre to see our shows. It’s about spending with us, being part of what we do and of course enjoying a great cup of coffee whilst you’re here.
With Ethical Addictions placed as the headline sponsor of The Friends scheme, the company will benefit from increased brand exposure to a very targeted group of people.
“It’s all about encouraging people to get talking about the coffee we serve at The Roses, in the hope that they choose to buy this coffee for their homes, or indeed their work places” says Beckie Smith, Director of Marketing and Development at The Roses. “With a creative and targeted campaign with our Friends and Patrons, we are confident that we can help Ethical Addictions not only increase their brand awareness in Gloucestershire but get people talking about how ethical their coffee really is.”
“The Roses is so much more than a place to see theatre and film” says Ian. The work they do enriching communities, giving people new skills and helping people to feel connected, builds a better and stronger community and we are really proud to be helping this work thrive.”
We would like to thank Ethical Addictions for their support
