Private Sponsorship

We very much welcome the contribution of our private sponsors as it is a vital element of the Charity’s funding, especially when supplemented by our ability to claim Gift Aid within the established rules. The money is used to bring high quality performers to Rye at modest ticket prices and invest in promoting the appreciation and education of the arts. Our wide range of events also benefits the individual venues that we use through the fees that we pay them.

 Benefits of private sponsorship
