boast sponsorship are proud to be working with the organisers of Derby Festé, which this year takes place on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September 2011.
Now in its fifth year, Derby Festé is an annual festival held in and around the streets of Central Derby, bringing together an eclectic mix of world-class live cultural performances, music, film and much more, organised by three of Derby’s leading arts organisations; QUAD, Dedá and Derby LIVE.
During its relatively short existence so far, the festival has build a strong regional and national reputation as being one of the biggest and best weekends of its kind in the entire UK. The majority of the festival and what it has on offer is free to the general public and is regarded by many as the highlight of Derby’s annual event calendar.
Most of the acts and activities of Derby Festé is centred around the City’s Cathedral Quarter, which for those of you who don’t already know, is in an area that we at boast sponsorship call home. It’s important to us as a company to support local projects, events and festivals as best we can, and this is no different.
Based on the popularity of the festival (circa 35,000 attended last years Derby Festé over the course of the weekend), the opportunities we have available through the festival are not only appealing in terms of such attendee figures, though this coupled with the vast amount of media coverage and exposure the festival attracts locally and regionally each year too.
In addition to this, there is also strong goodwill and PR associated with being involved in such a festival like this, and the importance it has on the people of Derby. There is therefore real opportunity for all kinds of companies to get on board in some shape or form and feel like a major player in the festival’s continued growth and success.
We already have a couple of companies who are very close to committing to this year’s festival though there is still plenty of scope to get involved, though time is running out. Therefore, if you’d like to find out more about the festival, then please do contact us as we’d love to hear from you.
