Support the Festival
The Festival’s success depends on your support – the residents and businesses of Burford and the surrounding villages. The Friends of the Festival, and corporate sponsors, contribute enormously to its success and ensure its ongoing viability.
As a Festival Friend you will benefit from the early release of tickets and secure your place at popular events. (Maximum of 2 seats per event).
Meet other Friends at our festival drinks party, to be held in April at The Ballroom, Asthall Manor.
Membership for 2024 is £60 per person – £100 per couple or you can make an annual payment of £30 per person – £50 per couple.

Are you a local business?
Sponsor an event
Sponsorship helps us to cover the costs of performers and venues. As a business your publicity will get right into the hands of the hundreds of festival visitors – via our brochure and on and our website.
We have four major sponsors who each contribute a minimum of £2,000. These sponsors have a full page advert in a prime location in our festival brochure and feature on all posters and on our website. Each major sponsor also receives four free tickets to an event of their choice.
For a £300-£800 contribution (depending on the size of event being sponsored) the name of each Event Sponsor will be displayed next to all descriptions of their event online and in print. Additionally Event Sponsors receive, 2 free tickets to their event.
All financial gifts or donations in kind (e.g. board and lodging for performers) are always welcome. All donors will be acknowledged as Festival Supporters in our brochure and on our website.
