Business Sponsors & Festival Friends

Keeping it local and free  …  for 23 years

If you sponsor or donate already we really cannot thank you enough and we hope we can count on your support again this year. It costs £80,000 to stage our ‘free for all’ music event. It’s a huge task to raise this amount every year and ensure the music is free. In 2019 we turned down a significant amount of revenue from out of town traders who want to profit from the Festival. So, to continue to keep this event ‘local’ we really need your support.

So, if your business benefits from the Festival, or you just enjoy being a spectator, please register your interest by emailing us to find out about the sponsorship options we offer and how they can benefit your business. These options will be available on this page later this month.

Your support and generosity is crucial for us to continue
