Support the Festival



If you would like to discuss how to add your support to the forthcoming Festival, please contact us on info@perthfestival.co.uk

The support of trusts and foundations is vital to the continued development and delivery of our Festival as a local charity.

Funding helps us develop a wide range of shows each year and bring new arts experiences to as many people as possible. It helps us to engage high quality artists while keeping our ticket prices as accessible as we can to audiences.

Grant funding also enables us to organise several free events, particularly for children and young people. We have long-standing relationships with local schools, Scottish Opera and English Touring Opera which provide both performance and participation opportunities for young people of all ages. Some funders choose to support support these bespoke education and outreach events during the Festival or to fund a specific concert in our programme.

Our 2020 and 2021 funders and sponsors are listed below.

Corporate Sponsorship

As a Scottish charity, the Festival has enjoyed vibrant partnerships with businesses for the past 49 years. This support helps us to bring the arts to over 12,000 people each year.  It keeps us at the leading edge of the arts in Perth and helps us leave a legacy of community benefit, especially for local young people.

In return, we work hard to ensure that the support of local businesses is proudly promoted and that our partners enjoy a special Festival experience.

The Festival offers a range of opportunities for companies to join us as Corporate Partners. These include exclusive opportunities to sponsor a Festival event, as well as tiered packages that may suit a smaller business or provide a taster of a Festival partnership.

All packages offer excellent opportunities for clients and staff to enjoy the Festival atmosphere within the stunning Festival venues such as Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre.

 

Event Sponsorship Packages

This package allows a sponsor to choose an event from the Festival programme to be branded as “sponsored by…” with the use of the company logo and accompanied by a range of benefits, including complimentary tickets and acknowledgement online on our website and event programme. 

In 2021, our Online Festival will offer opportunities for Event corporate sponsorship, promoting your support to a global audience, while our Drive-in Cinema will have opportunities to advertise to a local audience over 3 days on the 'big screen'.
