Are you a local business with a big heart who wants to reach new customers?
Festivals are an excellent way of promoting your brand to new customers and gaining visibility throughout Bristol, one of the UK’s most vibrant and creative cities. And what better way to do that than by sponsoring Mayfest, described by the Guardian as having
A mix of work so tasty it makes you want to up sticks and move to Bristol permanently The Guardian
Each year, Mayfest takes over venues across the city for an explosion of performance. From the Georgian splendour of the newly refurbished Bristol Old Vic to Circomedia’s beautiful church on Portland Square, to the Tobacco Factory Theatres, Arnolfini and various nooks and crannies around the city, Mayfest is a festival for Bristol with an international reach.
Mayfest is produced by MAYK, a small organisation. To date, we have received generous support from a range of partners, including Arts Council England, Bristol City Council, Bristol Old Vic and our other partner venues.
We’re always on the look-out for new partners. There are a number of different ways for you to get involved, including advertising in our brochure, offering support-in-kind and becoming a festival sponsor.
Mayfest is an important part of Bristol’s cultural life – a platform for artists, and a celebratory festival which enriches its audiences lives. We’d love to hear from you if you are an individual or organisation and would like to support the work we do or discuss sponsorship or advertising opportunities.
