Business sponsorship

Sponsoring the Wirksworth Festival is a fantastic way for your business to raise its profile. Around 10,000 people attend events at the Festival each year and we reach even more people through both our on and offline communications throughout the year.

Sponsoring the Festival is also a great way for you to meet your corporate social responsibility targets, the Festival has strong roots in the town – engaging and encouraging participation from very many local community and school groups.

Wirksworth Festival is run by a small part time team and bank of volunteers and does not receive any major external funding, instead relies on support from local businesses, small grants and in-kind support.

If you are interested in sponsoring the Festival, we would love to hear from you, please contact Carol Taylor, the Chair of the Festival Board at

We are delighted that Technolog Ltd have renewed their sponsorship for the Festival again for 2016:
