Our partnership builds upon American Express’ history of supporting the best in the arts from around the world.
The partnership is a valued addition to American Express’ award winning ‘Preferred Seating’ programme, offering Cardmembers special access to memorable experiences at many of the country’s most sought after entertainment events.
American Express will support the National Theatre through several different strands of commercial and philanthropic activity on both sides of the Atlantic, including headline sponsorship of one prominent production in London each year. American Express will also support the gala performance of the National Theatre’s acclaimed production of War Horse in New York.
The American Express Foundation has been a supporter of the National Theatre for many years providing funding for previous work including Tom Stoppard's Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, Mikhail Bulgakov's The White Guard and Howard Barker's Scenes from an Execution.
Raymond Joabar, UK Managing Director, American Express, comments:
“We are delighted to be working with such an internationally respected organisation to give our Cardmembers access to some of the best theatre the UK has to offer, further building on our support for the arts in the UK and around the world.”
Nicholas Hytner, Director of the National Theatre, said:
"The loyalty and commitment of our corporate partners is vital in enabling the National to thrive; the generosity of American Express will help us to continue programming an exciting and adventurous repertoire for the widest possible audience."
