Festival Sponsors & Friends 2023

Discover all the benefits of business sponsorship on the Sponsorship page or become a private donor or ‘friend’ on the  festival friend page

We would love you to become a sponsor of our extremely popular, three day festival in May. As a business, there are many benefits and added to those, you will be featured here, throughout the year with links to your own website.

Accommodation businesses and Eateries are also featured on our ‘Where to Eat and Stay’ page, and retailers on ‘Where to shop’.  This will direct our many website visitors straight to you.

And it doesn’t end after the Festival – the music love continues!   We mail our visitors throughout the year.
