The Phantom Knights are an American style marching show Corps that are based in Atherstone Warwickshire. Originally based in Nuneaton, during 2010 the organisation relocated its base into Atherstone following lots of support from the town’s local community, council, and schools. Officially launched in October 1996, the membership lives mainly in the Atherstone and surrounding areas but due to the Corps’ popularity, members and instructors have travelled from all over the UK to be part of the Phantom Knights.
The Corps is made up of a marching brass line, marching percussion, static tuned percussion and the colour guard. Each section is supported by our experienced instructors, who themselves have marched with several UK Show Corps.
We are proud to be providing a service to today’s youth and an experience that will last them a lifetime.
The Phantom Knights running costs are in excess of £25,000 per year. The majority is raised by subs paid by the members and fund raising events held throughout the year.
This year we are trying to raise extra money to spray and fit shelving in our recently acquired replacement truck. We will require a minimum of £1500.
Our sponsorship scheme is, quite simply, to have your company name displayed on the side of our truck in a space 80 x 15cm for as little as £100.
Companies will gain from widespread national publicity as the Corps travels to competitions.
We can also add your company name and logo to the links section of our Website (an average of 900 hits per month).
There will also be the prestige involved in associating your company name with a respected youth organisation pursuing the training and development of young people.
Giving the kids the chance to have a purpose.
