Situated within one of the country’s greatest regional theatres, the Press Office at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is an exciting, professional and fast-paced environment.

Now you don’t need to bring a production to the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre to benefit from the resources and expertise of our Press team: coupling our wealth of experience in public relations with a dedicated passion and enthusiasm for theatre and the arts, you can engage the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Press Office to produce creative, tailor-made press campaigns for you.

Our Press Office is run by Press and PR Manager, Laura Butler.  Fully accustomed to working with a wide range of journalists and venues, Laura generates publicity across traditional and online media on a daily basis.  She has nine years of experience promoting a diverse mix of classic and contemporary productions, working with new, lesser-known and well-established writing and readily engaging with big industry names and emerging talent alike.

No project is too big or too small; we are committed to excellence and we won’t accept more press projects than we can effectively deliver at a given time.

If you’d like to learn more about working with us, Laura would love to discuss the press service we can offer you – please contact her in the Press Office on 01483 443950 or at  Alternatively, you can contact Head of Sales & Marketing, Dan McWilliam on 01483 440077 or at
