FolkWeek Sponsorship Programme
The Festival benefits the majority of Sidmouth town businesses and many organisations within the area. It is now widely recognised that to sustain the event, some of this benefit has to be reinvested in the Festival through significant sponsorship.
We are delighted with this response and, in its turn, the Festival has recognised the importance of this development by launching an entirely new range of sponsorship packages, from Bronze to the elite Platinum level. These bands provide sponsors with benefits through graded packages of advertising, promotional opportunities via FolkWeek media and at events, and invitations to attend FolkWeek performances.
FolkWeek sponsors and advertisers are provided with posters to display in their businesses. Whenever possible, please give our sponsors and advertisers your custom during FolkWeek.
in 2012 we were pleased to welcome the following businesses and organisations as members of the Sponsorship Programme.
The Bedford Hotel
The Mocha Group
Sidmouth Cricket Club
Sidmouth Rugby Club
Waitrose (Sidmouth branch)
The White Horse Café
Field’s of Sidmouth

In 2011 we introduced a new Diamond level just below Platinum, and split Bronze into 2 levels to give our sponsors more options.
