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. And with the strong roots the Festival has in the town, engaging participation from very many local community and school groups, this is a great opportunity for your business to be part of that.

Wirksworth Festival is a charity run by a small part-time team and band of volunteers. We don’t 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.


In 2017 we received support from the following:
