Rathbones has a long history of supporting the arts, from the Tate Liverpool to Art for Youth and we are delighted to show our support to Scottish Ballet by becoming their corporate dance partners.
The recent pandemic has been a challenge for everyone in the arts industry with venues closed, loss of income and uncertainty on dates for a return to live performances. Rathbones’ sponsorship aims to support Scottish Ballet during this period of transition as restrictions ease and life returns to normal.
Throughout the last year Scottish Ballet has been delivering everything that it can online. From ballet classes for absolute beginners to advanced dancers, alongside a weekly programme of dance health classes for those living with neurological conditions. As well as creating and sharing new dance films to presenting dancer and creative team talks to its membership, Scottish Ballet also produced a critically acclaimed full-length feature film The Secret Theatre for audiences last Christmas. All of which have kept audiences at home and abroad entertained.As we slowly and carefully come out of lockdown we look forward to the safe return of live events.
"Scottish Ballet’s ambitions to promote Scotland’s pioneering spirit far and wide and explore new styles and push creativity chimes well with Rathbones’ own aim to Look Forward."

Adam Drummond, regional director at Rathbone Investment Management comments: “Scottish Ballet celebrates Scotland, showcasing our collective drive, passion and creativity across the world. We are proud to be able to sponsor such a vibrant and talented organisation, particularly at this challenging time for the arts industry.

We are looking forward to making the most of these virtual events while we can, and to returning as audience members to enjoy the company’s live performances.”
Christopher Hampson, CEO/artistic director at Scottish Ballet: “We are delighted that Rathbones Investment Management is supporting the arts of Scotland through joining the Scottish Ballet family as corporate dance partners. We look forward to welcoming their guests and clients to our events, online and in person as we work towards our return to the stage.
