Support Burford Festival

Support the Festival

The success of the Festival depends on the support of the residents and businesses in Burford and the surrounding villages.

The Friends of the Festival, and corporate sponsors and advertisers, have contributed enormously to its success and help underpin its commercial viability.

Support us as an individual

By becoming a Friend or Benefactor…

If you would like to financially support us, full details of how you can are set out in this leaflet. We suggest a minimum contribution of £25 per person as a Friend and those who wish to donate £100 or more will be recognised as Benefactors

As a small thank you, Benefactors and Friends (plus a guest) will be entitled to priority booking for all Festival events and the very popular Festival Banquet.

In addition, Benefactors and their guests will be entitled to reserve seats of their choice at all events, and Benefactors will be invited to the post-Festival ‘thank you’ event for volunteers.

By volunteering to help…

The Festival simply couldn’t happen without the assistance of scores of volunteers in numerous roles. If you would like to volunteer, please download the leaflet here which explains some of the different opportunities available

By coming to the Festival events…

This is, after all, what it is all about. We aim to offer something new as well as some favourites for everyone. Come and enjoy it all!

Support us as a business

By sponsoring an event…

Most of our events are open to sponsorship to help cover the costs of performers and venues, and will provide your business with targeted publicity at the event and in our brochure and website.

By advertising in our brochure…

Around 15,000 brochures will be delivered to households within a 15km radius and through visitor centres, pubs and hotels in the area, providing an excellent advertising opportunity.

By making a donation in kind…

Raffle prizes, food and drink donations or board and lodging for performers provide very useful additional support. All donors will be acknowledged as Festival Supporters in our brochure and on our website.

If you have not been approached and wish to know more about these opportunities, please contact
