Light the Fuse – Sponsorship Opportunities 2022

Lichfield Arts keeps Fuse free in order to ensure no barriers to entry for the community. This means we have to fundraise in order to cover our costs. Hence we need financial aid and support in kind from business partners, sponsors and donors who, by supporting us, can raise their own profile amongst our target audience.

Our Offer To You

Fuse offers different sponsorship packages that can be tailored to suit your needs. Options start at £500 plus VAT, and benefits include your name on our social media channels, festival banners, programmes, flyers and our website, along with access for your staff to our backstage VIP marquee during the festival.

Reach

We welcomed around 12,000 people to the Fuse Festival in 2021. Our surveys show that people travel to be part of Fuse. As well as Lichfield, Burntwood and the surrounding villages , our visitors come from places such as Coventry, Birmingham, Cannock, Stafford, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Tamworth, Derby, Shrewsbury and Stoke-upon-Trent. We’re active across multiple social media channels, have a dedicated website and have an audience right across the age demographic from young children to the over 80’s.

Reputation

Fuse is a much loved and valued event in the calendar, and you will be an integral part of making that happen. Supporting us is an excellent 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 locally, as Lichfield Arts is a key player in the thriving arts and creative community.

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…..

More widely 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 3,000 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.

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 are marquee hire, toilets hire, fencing, waste disposal, van hire, hotel accommodation and  drinking water and food for volunteers.
