The Festival supports and encourages children’s development by building self-confidence.  It provides an opportunity to perform on a great stage and develop their skills and talents.  Each child who takes part in the Festival receives constructive feedback from a professional adjudicator.  We know the performers love the whole experience because they come back year after year!  However, we wouldn’t be able to stage the Festival without the help of our sponsors.

Sponsorship ranges from £50 to sponsor a class to becoming one of our main sponsors who help us with larger donations.  We work with our main sponsors to ensure that we help you achieve your corporate responsibility aims.

Class Sponsorship £50:

If you sponsor a class your name or company name will appear under the class title in the programme:

Verse Speaking – 10 years and under
Kindly Sponsored by Your Company

Your name or company name will also be announced at the beginning of the class.

Sponsorship enables us to engage professional adjudicators to give constructive feedback to each performer.  It also helps to fund the winners’ medals and the much-prized certificate that each child receives to commemorate their participation in the Festival.

Main Sponsors:

Main sponsors provide £500 or over.  This helps us to hold the Festival at the wonderful venue of the Cheltenham Town Hall.  Sponsors help us to recruit volunteers and provide specialised facilities and assistance for disadvantaged and community groups.

In return we provide a full colour advert in our programme, complimentary programmes and Festival passes for your employees.  We can also arrange volunteering opportunities for your employees or run storywriting workshops for children of your team.  If you hold events we can promote them via our website and Facebook page.
