For the second year running, boast are proud to announce that we will once again be working with the organisers of Derby Festé in looking for sponsorship for the upcoming festival, with the dates for this years festival being Thursday 20th – Saturday 22nd September.
Now in its sixth 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, and is organised by the three leading arts organisations of Derby; QUAD, Deda and Derby LIVE.
Regarded by many as the highlight of Derby’s annual events calendar, the festival’s reputation continues to grow both locally and nationally and it’s worth adding that of the circa 35,000 attendees at last year’s festival, around a third of them traveled from outside of Derby.
The majority of acts and activities planned for this year’s Derby Festé will once again be based in and around the Catherdral Quarter, including the Cathedral Green and Market Place. This year will see the exciting French act of Luc Amoros and their ‘Page Blanche’ performance on both the Thursday and Friday evenings of Derby Festé on the Cathedral Green.
On the Saturday of Derby Festé there will once again be a whole range of acts performing throughout the daytime, in and around the city centre. Saturday evening will see the ‘Games Time’ performance on Darley Park between 7.00pm – 9.00pm before the first screening of ‘The Derby Soap Opera’ on the Cathedral Green from 9.30pm – 10.00pm before the finale being a two hour Jive / Swing Party in the Market Place between 9.00pm – 11.00pm.
Based on the popularity of the festival, the opportunities we have available through the festival are not only appealing in terms of attendee figures though are also 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, and the importance it has on the people of Derby. There are opportunities therefore for all kinds of companies to get on board in some shape or form and help contribute to the festival’s continued growth and success. Whilst we already have a couple of companies who are very close to committing to this year’s festival there is still plenty of scope to get involved.
