Sponsor us!

After the year we have all had, it’s about time for a celebration!

2021 marks 10 years of Blackburn Festival of Light and we’d love you to be part of it.

Having grown from a small event run by a single artist working with the council to the large-scale celebratory events of the last few years we plan to give Blackburn something special to mark our anniversary year, creating a cultural attraction bringing audiences to the town and putting Blackburn on the map of places to go this Winter.

Have a look at our Sponsorship Brochure below and read on for more info.

Blackburn Festival of Light is a celebration by and for the people of the town. Community ownership and engagement is at the heart of what we do. We believe in the town and it’s people, and that Blackburn is and deserves to be a place to be proud of. The event is run annually by a team of artists from Blackburn Festival of Light CIC, in partnership with Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council and Blackburn BID. 

We know that given the opportunity people from all different backgrounds and walks of life can and will come together to create wonderful experiences and shared memories, building a stronger community invested in their local area. 

As a local business with significant pride in your town, who wants to ensure you have a stake in the borough’s prosperity, helping it to create wealth and opportunities for all, we’d like to invite you to look over the enclosed brochure and to consider sponsoring some of our activities this year to help make this a year to remember, but for all the right reasons! 

This year it is proving particularly difficult to access our usual funding pots so it is more essential than ever that we are supported by local businesses. We really do need your help to make this year’s celebration a successful event that is worthy of the town and marks 10 years of wonderful community involvement is a truly spectacular way.

Sponsors will be included on our Funders and Sponsors page on our website, and thanked on our social media channels and larger donors will have their logos included in our print and social media publicity and event programme. 

Please get in touch if you would like to have a chat about how you could be involved in making this a real celebration of our community.
