Businesses on the Fylde coast are putting themselves in the spotlight by becoming patrons of the 2013 outdoor theatre season at Lytham Hall.

Three new Lytham firms are lending their support to the programme of outdoor plays which opens with Chapterhouse Theatre’s production of Pride and Prejudice on Friday, June 14.

New patrons for the four play season are Estate Agency John Ardern and Company, Java Café-Bistro and Wine Bar and Lanigan’s Fishmongers.

Zoe Ardern from the John Ardern Estate Agency in Park Street, Lytham said the success of Lytham’s summer events such as the Proms, the World War Two weekend and the outdoor theatre shows are keeping Lytham in the spotlight.

She said: “The open air theatre at Lytham has built up a strong following in the past three years and we are very happy to lend our support to a success story.”

The newcomers join patrons such as the Lytham St Annes Express, Stringers Department Store, Strongs Fruit and Vegetables, Booths Supermarkets, Martin Edward Gunson’s Chartered Accountancy, Pemberton’s Dairies, Roland Robinson and Fentons, Solicitors and Direct Medical Imaging.

Julian Wilde, organiser of the plays at Lytham Hall said: “It’s very heartening to have so much goodwill and support from business and commerce here on the Fylde coast.”
