Light the Fuse – Partnership Opportunities 2021

Lichfield Arts is proud to engage with around 30,000 participants annually, with our three main festivals attracting well over 20,000 visitors between them and more than 3000 visitors to our concerts.

Our regular e-mail newsletters are sent to over 4,500 supporters, and we offer regular, engaging social media content via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Twice a year Lichfield Arts issues a printed programme of events to households across and beyond the district.

Collectively these offer an excellent opportunity for you to promote your business!  We offer a range of corporate sponsorship opportunities to suit all budgets that will raise your profile among your target audiences. There are options to become a major backer of the whole year’s programme by supporting the organisation across all its activities, or to be a more specialised supporter by contributing to particular events or community projects that appeal to you and your target audiences. 

Lichfield Arts prides itself on building strong, supportive partnerships with local businesses and as well as offering exciting sponsorship and advertising opportunities. 

We also welcome support in kind: many businesses support us by providing skills or materials that help us deliver our events. Examples of areas in which we could benefit from support in kind are: Marquee hire, toilets hire, fencing, bottled water and food for volunteers, waste disposal, van hire, hotel accommodation.

Our offer to you

Reach

We welcomed around 12,000 people to the Fuse festival this year. Our surveys show that people travel to be part of Fuse, with visitors coming from Coventry, Birmingham, Cannock, Stafford, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Tamworth, Derby, Shrewsbury & Stoke-upon-Trent as well as Lichfield, Burntwood and the surrounding villages. We’re active across multiple social media channels, have a dedicated website and have an audience right across the age demographic from under 18s to over 50’s.

Reputation

Fuse is a much loved and much valued event in the calendar, and you will be an integral part of making that happen. Supporting us is a great way to show that your organisation is active in and cares about the local community. It’s also a great way to contribute to cultural and economic development in Lichfield. Lichfield Arts is a key player in the thriving arts and creative community that exists across the Lichfield District area.

Professionalism

Lichfield Arts has been delivering arts and cultural activity across Lichfield District for nearly 50 years. We are confident that we’ll be delivering an event you’ll be hugely proud to be associated with.

And if all of this looks like fun…..

There’s loads more to be involved with in the future!

From 2022 we hope to be back to normal, delivering the festivals we’re known for – Fuse, the L2F Festival of Folk and the Blues and Jazz festival – as well as live performances, exhibitions and outreach work in the local community.

We’ve got some exciting plans ahead, and we’d love to share them with you.
