Sponsor The Festival

Anyone who has attended a Petworth Festival event in recent years whether live or online will be aware of the importance of our sponsors. We can only bring the quality of performers and authors to our twin festivals that we do because of the financial support consistently received over and above anything that can be achieved at the box office. Our venues are mostly of a modest size but we annually bring artists and authors who would fill halls many times bigger elsewhere and who charge accordingly! Sponsorship also helps us to achieve our charitable aims in providing opportunities for younger and lesser-known performers of genuine talent as well as helping us to keep ticket prices to levels where we can hope to attract audiences who might not otherwise be able to attend. Without sponsorship, the average price for a ticket to a Petworth Festival concert would be over £40.

Thank you to our existing supporters for your extraordinary and loyal support over many years and we hope that individually and severally you stay with us for many more, whether as an individual or as a corporate supporter.

All sponsors receive benefits that range from our concierge style ticket booking service, through to receptions, entertaining opportunities, public recognition and acknowledgement
where required, and meetings with artists, all depending on the level of contribution.

If you would like information regarding sponsorship – whether the summer festival, literary week or both – please contact Stella Goodson info@petworthfestival.org.uk or telephone 01798 343055.

Support for the Summer Festival starts at £500 and for the Literary Week from only £300.

A sincere and heartfelt thank you to all those who have already committed their support to the 2024 Petworth Festival.
