We are continually grateful to everyone who has worked and helped to make the growth of the Festival  possible.

We rely on core funding from the Keynsham Town Council and B&NES Arts Development to make the Festival possible: after that we have your donations that can only be estimated before the events.  To add the extra magic, and additional  facilities for the wider community, we rely on sponsorship from local business and organisations, and partnerships with local organisations.

The outreach and publicity associated with the Festival is considerable and continualy growing – it reflects the whole-community nature of the Festival.

If you wish to discuss sponsorship please contact us.
