Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsoring a Somerton Arts & Music Festival event or performer is a great way to get your company or organisation noticed within the local community. Our town events start on Friday 1st July and end on Thursday 14th July with Jive Night.

Somerton’s own family friendly music festival Somerstock is also part of the week long festival, this year taking place  on Saturday the 9th July with 12 bands performing across two outdoor stages at the Somerton Recreation Ground and our annual Family Fun Day is now part of the Somerstock weekend, taking place on 10th July.

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 2021 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 in 2021 through both our festival events and Somertock, enabling us to make a donation of £500 to St Margaret’s Hospice, and a further £450 to the Somerton Recreation Ground.

In 2022 our partner charities are Somerset & Dorset Air Ambulance and Somerton Recreation Ground.

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.
