2017 saw the successful launch of Winchestival, a family-friendly festival featuring music, comedy and food, and attracting 3,700 visitors in just one day.
Situated in the heart of Winchester, the festival showcased well-known artists together with the best in local up-and-coming talent, as well as national and international comedians and a delicious selection of street food.
2018 sees the exciting return of the festival, bigger and better, with a top-class line-up due to be announced at the end of February, and with more ambitious plans to grow. At full capacity, the festival can accommodate 5,000 visitors, and there are plans to extend to a two-day weekend from 2019.
The festival provides a fantastic opportunity to draw new crowds into the city of Winchester as well as entertaining our already buzzing community, and encouraging footfall in the town centre and into other local attractions.
The festival and all future plans for it can only come to fruition with the support of local residents and businesses and so Winchestival are seeking sponsors and advertisers for 2018.
There are several options available, ranging from programme and banner advertising to main festival sponsor. Each level of sponsorship comes with a variety of incentives, and all include a number of specially allocated VIP tickets for employees, friends and family. Local is at the heart of what Winchestival is aiming to achieve.
With Super Early Bird tickets already sold out, and Early Bird tickets selling fast, Winchestival promises to go from strength to strength. The deadline is fast approaching, as promotional materials will need to be produced soon after the line-up announcement at the end of February.
