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: firstname.lastname@example.org
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
