With an expected turnout of approximately six thousand people over the weekend, this year’s Festival is a great opportunity to advertise and promote local businesses in and around the Dales. We have a variety of sponsorship packages available to local businesses ranging from website listings for eateries and accommodation to print advertising in our programme and even sponsoring the shuttle bus! We are also offering a Local Business Support Scheme for those wishing continue their support throughout the year by way of an annual donation. With varying prices and options, there is a package to suit every business no matter how big or small.
