The Wellington Festival, which takes place over three weeks in October and one week in May, is one of the UK’s largest free access festivals and in 2018, it celebrates it’s 22nd anniversary. In 2016, the Festival was rebranded from a Literary Festival which successfully increased it's audience whilst appealing to a more diverse range of people. Audiences visit the Festival from all across the UK and often stay in the local area which definitely assists with the promotion of the vibrant market town of Wellington. The Festival programme is ever changing, whilst building on the success of previous years and as a minimum includes comedy, dance, drama, photography, culture and various aspects of literature.
The Festival is run by a group of volunteers and is funded solely by a small grant from Wellington Town Council. Fortunately, the Festival generates a lot of interest with the local media including the Shropshire Star and BBC Radio Shropshire. However, our marketing budget is extremely small which is why we are seeking sponsorship for individual events or the Festival as a whole. We have a wide range of events which include travel, arts, culture, sports, history and photography and I am sure that there will be several that will appeal to the customer demographic base of numerous businesses.
