We have a variety of sponsorship packages available ranging from the lead sponsorship of the entire festival through to Corporate Supporters which costs from £95 per annum and is a very valuable way for the traders in Broadstairs to help keep the festival in the town. 

We Value our Sponsors

We try and make sure that sponsors feel valued and we give as much profile to them as we can possibly manage. Broadstairs Folk Week is not a commercial festival that can take advantage of different open stages in a green field site; it is a community event that contributes a huge amount to the local economy, lasts a whole week and attracts thousands and thousands of visitors to the area.

Real Ale

Folk music seems to have a very strong link to real ale and we are very grateful to the Shepherd Neame brewery not only for brewing lovely beer but also for their sponsorship which we hope encourages all our festival-goers to opt for a pint of Masterbrew in the local hostelries.

Sponsor an Activity

There are many different activities in the festival that can be sponsored the workshops in music, song and dance; the young people’s events; the concerts, dances we are flexible and can create a package to suit your company.

Our lead Sponsors this year are: Shepherd Neame, Vattenfall Offshore UK, New Life Wills, BCS Computer Solutions, Regain Hearing & Rent a Bar we are truly grateful for their support. But it’s not too late if you would like to support the festival this year.

Supporting Broadstairs Folk Week as a sponsor gives your company an excellent opportunity

to promote your business to thousands of people during the festival. Local people have the festival dates in their diaries as part of their summer calendar. Visitors from all parts of the country stay in Broadstairs, in Thanet and around East Kent.
