2022 Festival Sponsors & Supporters

The key purpose of sponsorship is to support us in our charitable objectives of promoting the arts by enabling us to bring high quality performers to Rye at modest ticket prices and invest in assisting the appreciation and education of the arts.

Our Private Sponsors
We very much welcome the contribution of our private sponsors as a vital element of our funding, especially when supplemented by our ability to claim Gift Aid within the established rules. Our wide range of events also benefits the individual venues that we use through the fees that we pay them. The benefits of sponsorship include complimentary premium seats for you and your guests at the event or events of your choice, listing against the relevant event and on the Sponsors’ page on our website and an opportunity to meet performers (subject to their agreement). The minimum amount to share in these benefits is £250 – there is no maximum.
