Sponsorship Opportunities

The Horsham Garden Music Festival need to raise approximate £8000 in sponsorships / grants to fund the 2019 concerts. The balance of the costs will be raised through grants, donations, concession commissions and raffle income generated at the afternoon events.

Horsham Garden Music Festival was set up in 2012 to promote, develop and provide opportunity to amateur and semi-professional performers for the benefit of the local community. The Festival is held annually in the amphitheatre of the beautiful Human Nature Garden in Horsham Park. It is free to attend and brings people together across generations and social classes raising wellbeing and community pride. We aim to create a fully inclusive, family-friendly event.

The benefits:

The 2018 concerts saw a footfall of almost 6000 attendees across the four afternoon events with a further 180 performers, volunteers, production staff and local traders participating and contributing to its success. We are anticipating a similar number at our next festival. Surveys undertaken at the events have shown that the people of Horsham District look forward to the event and year on year we have seen an increase in attendance as it has grown in popularity. Our team are pleased that this translates into increased brand exposure for our sponsors.

Sponsors have reported favourable returns for their sponsorship investment. They have reported being pleased with the opportunity to showcase their products and services. An exhibition area is provisioned to support an increased brand awareness along with well-positioned advertising banners, additional media exposure and, of course, the growing attendance
