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 starts at £50 for a single Class Sponsorship and increases for donations.  We are happy to develop bespoke advertising programmes with our main sponsors to help them achieve their corporate responsibility and advertising objectives.

Class Sponsorship £50:

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

Verse Speaking – 10 years and under
Kindly Sponsored by Your Name/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 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.
