Support the Festival

If you would like to discuss how to add your support to the forthcoming Festival, please contact us on

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 2019 supporters are listed below.

Corporate Sponsorship

As a Scottish charity, the Festival has enjoyed vibrant partnerships with businesses for the past 47 years. This support helps us to bring the arts to over 11,500 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.
