Sponsoring a Somerton Arts & Music Festival event or performer is a great way to get your company or organisation noticed within the local community.
Somerton’s own family friendly music festival Somerstock is also part of the week long festival, with lots of top bands performing across two outdoor stages at the Somerton Recreation Ground. The annual Family Fun Day is now part of the Somerstock weekend.
There are plenty of opportunities to support your local community festival. You can sponsor a town event such as a walk or a talk, a band at one of our local hostelries or anything else you can think of that makes a good brand fit.
In 2023 we were very lucky to benefit from some great sponsors, providing either services or funding to continually help us improve the festival. Without this support, the festival would not raise the great sums it does for charity.
The money raised through both our festival events and Somertock, enabled us to make a donation of £250 to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, as well as supporting local youth organisation Archies Xtra. A collaboration with the School in a Bag charity to run the festival bar raised a further £4500 for the local charity.
What we can do for you in return
1. Publicity in the local community for your business. Your name will appear on our digital and printed publications and on our website. Your organisation will also appear in our free festival programme which is available at all events and in many local Somerton venues.
2. Social media engagement across all platforms
3. Free tickets to events (number subject to size of sponsorship)
4. A shout-out by the Acts and/or Compere on the event
5. You have the heartfelt thanks and appreciation of the organising committee and your local community, and more importantly, your customers and clients.
Above all, you keep the Somerton Music & Arts Festival and Somerstock alive and strong into the future.
