Join our community of business supporters

Business people know what it takes to run an organisation - and Durham Cathedral is more complex than most!  We work with businesses, large and small, who believe in corporate social responsibility and want to 'give something back' to our region.

Income from corporate partnerships may be designated for a specific project - in the form of sponsorship, for example - or directed towards the area of greatest need.  Each year, corporate partners make it possible for us to:

  • Safeguard historic fabric and collections;
  • Conserve precious woodlands and riverbanks;
  • Attract visitors to the North East and inspire new generations with a fantastic experience, showcasing arts and culture.

Corporate partnerships offer a range of benefits...

Above all, our corporate partners are passionate about Durham Cathedral - its buildings and people, and our life and work.  But we are also keen to say 'thank you' by offering a number of perks in return for their support.  All corporate partners receive, as a minimum:

  • Monthly e-newsletter;
  • 10% staff discount in Shop and Restaurant;*
  • Early-bird and exclusive discounts for concert and exhitibition tickets for staff;
  • PR opportunities, especially in marketing linked to specific projects;
  • Use of our corporate partnership logo for duration of their association.
Sponsorship/membership exceeding £2.5k p.a. also entitles the partner to a complimentary hire of our Prior's Hall, an exclusive medieval meeting and entertaining space, with a capacity of up to 100.
*Upon production of a valid e-card; discount in the Shop may not apply to all lines.

"Our business community is an inspiration - never more so than during the Covid-19 pandemic. If you run a business and would like to make an impact upon a site of international significance for faith, heritage and culture, I'd be delighted to hear from you." - Matthew Mills, Relationship & Development Manager
