Funders & Sponsors

The festival is a happy community event of which we are very proud.  Although most of Folk Week's income is raised through ticket sales, street collections, lottery ticket sales, and Friends of Folk Week, the festival also receives support from local authority grants and commercial sponsors, both in Broadstairs and further afield.  A combination of all these factors is vital to the future of the festival.


We invite you to join the successful businesses that have become major sponsors and keep us in town contributing a vast amount to the local community.



Benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • Venue branding
  • Concert branding
  • Banner placement during festival
  • Programme advertising
  • Website and social media advertising






Corporate Supporters Scheme

Many of the traders and businesses in Broadstairs support us through our Corporate Supporters' Scheme.  We provide a Corporate Supporters' sticker to notify the festival goers and locals to advertise your support of the festival.  You also get a mention in the programme!



If you are interested in becoming a sponsor please contact Jo Tuffs via email or at the Festival Office, Pierremont Hall, Broadstairs CT10 1JX


Friends of Folk Week are a vital financial and moral support for the festival and we are extremely grateful to them.


If you love Folk Week and want it to continue as it is – one of the few remaining festivals held in a town as opposed to in an enclosed green field site, then please support us.


Maybe you’re one of the local people who invite your friends and family down for the week to enjoy the festival and the atmosphere in the town? Find out below the benefits for you and how it helps us sustain the festival.


Benefits associated with the scheme:


  • Priority Booking on headline festival events
  • A Friends’ badge and Membership Card
  • 2 or 3 Free Tickets to a selection of events
  • A free Souvenir programme worth £5
  • Your name in the Souvenir Programme (if you join before 1st May)
  • Newsletters to keep you in touch with the Festival
  • Friends Get Together during the Festival
  • Access to The Jack Hamilton Bar during the Festival evening concerts
