I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Emma and the Encore Radio Team! They have made creating a radio campaign extremely easy and was so impressed with the on air support for our show! I would recommend Encore Radio to any theatre.

Our Audience

Did you know that the UK theatre and cinema industry is...

Big: Theatre is central to the cultural life of our nation. 63% of the UK population has been to at least one theatre show in the past year – that’s more than sporting events and music concerts.

Evolving: From both creative and business perspectives, the industry is entering a new phase of experimentation. Tastes of theatre-goers are expanding, with interactive and streamed theatre both well received, particularly amongst younger audiences.

Diverse: Likelihood to go to the theatre is highest amongst 16-19 year olds. Audiences have been growing proportionally younger for some time, with a 71% increase amongst 16-25 year olds since 2009

Growing: 4.2% growth annually in spending on theatre and cinema tickets over last three years, with the strongest growth in London

What our Audience Wants

A similar format to other UK stations providing news and weather.

Elaine Paige on Sunday Radio 2 gets 2m reach, and 300k+ are 35-54 ABC1.

Our music is taken from hit West End and Broadway shows with some popular film songs too.

The music and features are key - so news is limited to broadcasting 8 times a day, giving time mid morning/afternoon for the music to breathe.

Limited advertising and less clutter: only three breaks per hour of 2-3 minutes max, guaranteed for the first year.
