News: Sponsor Hurst Festival

Posted on 28th February 2017

Hurst Festival seeks sponsor for innovative community project

 

Since its inception 13 years ago, Hurst Festival has grown into one of the best arts festivals in Sussex. Our aim is to celebrate every aspect of art and culture as a means of strengthening ties within the village and surrounding areas.

 

Create a concert from scratch sponsorship

 

As part of this year’s Festival, we want to create a very special project in partnership with local primary school, St Lawrence CofE.

 

The project, led by internationally renowned composer Fraser Trainer and a team of talented professional musicians, will guide the children of St Lawrence to write and compose original pieces of music, which will then be performed as a concert during the Festival.

 

The project will engage children of all backgrounds and nurture an interest in live music. Because of this, we will not charge parents and the audience for tickets and are therefore seeking sponsors to help cover the costs of the project, around £4,000.

 

 

What’s in it for the sponsor?

 

As the event sponsor you will be featured prominently as a champion of this innovative community project in all Festival advertising.

 

Your details will be included in our brochure, which is distributed to 12,000 people in Hurstpierpoint and surrounding areas.

 

You will also be featured on our website and social media including Twitter and Facebook. You will also receive an advert for your company in our brochure.

 

Interested? Please contact Michel Olszewski, (Chair of Trustees) on 01273 834372 and he would be delighted to talk to you. Alternatively you can email him: molszewski@globalnet.co.uk
