Bishop Fleming Partner With Exeter Northcott Theatre
Top 30 firm, Bishop Fleming has partnered with Exeter Northcott Theatre, in a year-long campaign to support its charitable work. The firm, which delivers accounting, audit, tax and advisory services to businesses and individuals will work closely with the theatre which provides creative opportunities for the people of Devon.
Exeter’s Flagship Theatre
As Exeter’s flagship theatre, the Northcott welcomes more than 100,000 people through its doors each year and delivers creative opportunities to more than 16,000 people across the region. Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, the theatre has found innovative ways to stage live events and deliver life-changing creative projects for local communities.
James Finnegan, Partner and Head of Corporate Finance at Bishop Fleming said:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Exeter Northcott. Our values align with the need to support our local communities, and we hope by working together we can help those within our communities have something to look forward to after the Coronavirus pandemic.”
The sponsorship will support initiatives such as the Northcott’s Pay It Forward campaign which gives theatre tickets to people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to go. With sponsorship from Bishop Fleming along with donations from theatre bookers, the theatre plans to gift 1000 tickets via local organisations and charities over the coming year.
‘Absolutely fabulous. I bet they don’t know how much they were helping our children forget their worries for a few hours!’

Kelly Johnson, Marketing & Development Director at Exeter Northcott said:
‘We know how powerful it is when people come together and share extraordinary experiences. Bishop Fleming’s support means that more people will be able to come to the theatre and participate in events to develop their own creativity. Partnerships such as this result in real impact for our communities.’
We’re now able to give 500 tickets to A Christmas Carol to families who might not otherwise be able to come, through our Pay It Forward scheme. This has been made possible by the kind support of hundreds of donors and Bishop Fleming Chartered Accountants.’
