Sponsor the Festival

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Ryedale Festival is widely recognised as one of the most brilliant and enterprising festivals in the country, with an exciting future ahead. Festival supporters can sponsor the Festival in general, a series of concerts, specific concerts or artists.

Individual Sponsorship

Sometimes donors wish to be associated with specific concerts or artists. This can be recognised in the official programme and bespoke packages can also be arranged. For example, donors sometimes wish to sponsor a concert given by a specific performer, or to have a festival concert dedicated to the memory of a loved one.

Individual sponsors can be recognised in the official programme and bespoke packages can also be arranged. For example, donors sometimes wish to sponsor a concert given by a specific artist, have a concert dedicated to the memory of a loved one, or mark a special anniversary or occasion.

We now also offer the opportunity for syndicate sponsorship, whereby a group of supporters may club together to sponsor a particular event, artist or piece of music. Syndicates can be of any size and their support will be recognised in the same way as individual sponsors.
