Sponsoring L2F

L2F has proved a great success over the last two years which has seen its profile, both locally and further afield, rise. Although firmly rooted in the local community it has attracted praise from visitors across the region and is an event whose image is positive and up-beat. We believe that the Festival offers businesses the opportunity for a very beneficial promotion as well as supporting a valued community endeavour.

We invite sponsorship at many levels but are particularly seeking:

A minimum contribution of £2000 would help to pay for venue and PA costs.

In return the Main Sponsor would have access to promote their company at all concerts and events and through appropriate publicity. The company will also have its name prominently displayed on the programme which will be distributed free in the local community and at folk festivals across the country.
