Patrons & Sponsors

Thank you to all individuals and businesses who supported the 2018 Petworth Festival. We are very proud to have staged our 40th Petworth Festival and your contributions played a vital part in a wonderful summer celebration of the arts here in our small market town.
Everyone is credited below and I do urge you to scroll down as our Festival could not take place without their financial support.

We are a charity and depend on donations and we are determined to continue to enable world-class artists to perform in Petworth at reasonable ticket prices giving access to the arts in all forms to local people from all walks of life. So, could you or your business sponsor or part-sponsor a Festival event at this summer's Festival please?

Sponsorship of The Petworth Festival is essential to keep prices low, attract the highest calibre of artists, and create a diverse and widely attractive programme.

Support for the Summer Festival starts at £500 and for the Literary Week from only £250 so if you would like to discuss helping Petworth Festival in this way please contact Kate Wardle or telephone 01798 343055.
