Sponsoring the Petworth Festival Literary Week
The Petworth Festival Literary Week is the younger sibling of the long-established Petworth Festival. Starting as a humble Literary Weekend, we quickly had to inflate to a Literary Week, such was the interest in reading and books that the Festival released. Twelve years later we can now advertise line-ups that are the match of anything held outside the main centres of the country: ten days of varied discussion, debate and sometimes not a little controversy.
Who has graced our stages over our first twelve years? The list is huge, but to give you a feel… AA Gill, Andy McNab, Ann Widdecombe, Anthony Beevor, Antonia Fraser, Anthony Horowitz… and these are just the ‘A’s. Otherwise we give you William Boyd, Sebastian Faulks, Gyles Brandreth, Joanna Trollope, Julian Fellowes, Ken Livingstone, Prue Leith, Michael Palin, Michael Morpurgo…
Besides the quality of our speakers and our all-important relationship with The Petworth Bookshop, one other element has been an ever-present over these twelve years – sponsorship. Petworth businesses and private sponsors have been with us right from the beginning and between them they have helped guarantee the quality and scale of what we do. And our need for this support doesn’t go away. In fact, it grows. As our ambitions for the festival grow year on year and as we try ever harder to engage with the widest possible audiences (including families and local schools), we need support more than ever. But it isn’t a one-way track. Supporting events at the festival brings multiple rewards; practically in terms of priority booking, but much more than that. For corporate partners we offer access to our audience and multiple opportunities to develop awareness and brand, and to our private supporters we offer the opportunity to join a family that brings remarkable writers and remarkable minds to our area, and which also helps guarantee the quality of life we enjoy in West Sussex. The best that life can bring on your doorstep. We hope you will join our family!
If you would like information regarding sponsorship – whether the summer festival, literary week or both – please contact Stella Goodson email@example.com or telephone 01798 343055.
