Make this the year when you reflect your love of arts and culture through your business. For the first time, the organisers of Kidderminster Arts Festival are inviting businesses to support the annual event through a sponsorship programme.

Getting involved in KAF, organised by Wyre Forest District Council, is a unique opportunity to support the town and its commercial heart and also to reflect a businesses’ creative and innovative values.

This year the festival will open on Saturday 6 August through to Sunday 28 August and is expected to be the biggest yet.  More than 530 artists will be working with 181 crew members on 377 performances and around 130 workshops. There will also be 300 volunteering opportunities created for local people.

In 2015, the festival attracted interest from around 160,000 people from Kidderminster and the surrounding areas. Loz Samuels, KAF organiser said,

“For local businesses, sponsorship is an excellent opportunity to connect with residents and visitors in way they might not have previously done – through art and culture.  We know from our own research that getting involved with the festival has significant commercial benefits for businesses in the town.  This is the first time we have offered sponsorship packages which is a reflection of the growing success of the festival.  There are a number of sponsorship options starting from just £20 per day during the event.

“Opportunities include advertising on the KAF website, branding on KAF Festival brochure, social media mentions, newspaper adverts, collection vehicle panels, pop up displays, speaker opportunities and merchandising options.

“There is a wide range of opportunities to suit all types of business and all budgets. We are offering the sponsorship slots on a first come first served basis so we advise interested businesses to complete their applications as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
