About Us

We are a registered charity and we aim to promote art, music and drama in and around the picturesque town of Market Bosworth, Leicestershire.

We involve the local community by bringing the arts into the town.

We organise many events including:

  • Music, drama, film, comedy, lectures and entertainment of all kinds
  • Art and craft exhibitions
  • Workshops and competitions in schools, and entertainment for children
  • We offer young performers the opportunity to be seen and heard.

Details of our Summer 2018 programme are now on this site.


A sponsorship package with the Festival provides local businesses with a unique opportunity to reach the population of around 180,000 in widespread rural area centred on Market Bosworth. Increasingly we are drawing audiences from a wider regional base (the population living within a 40 minute drive is about 1.8 million) and attracting sponsorship from regional businesses as a result. We are already sponsored by the vast majority of local businesses so why not join them? As a small Arts organisation we are very dependent upon such financial contributions to enable us to carry on our good work, so you will also have the satisfaction of knowing your sponsorship is put to good use.

We are always willing to discuss how a sponsorship package can be tailored to your individual requirements but some initial ideas are listed below to form a basis for further discussion. 

Lead sponsor

As our principal sponsor for the year your logo/business name will appear prominently on all our literature (20,000 printed programmes, publicity posters etc.). You may erect an information stand and display banners at appropriate events and we will try to ensure good media coverage through our excellent local contacts. You will be entitled to a number of free tickets for events of your choice. Amount of investment by negotiation.

Event sponsors

We offer sponsorship of a number of different events aimed at different audience profiles: entertainment in the square, a classical music concert, open-air drama, art exhibitions & workshops and children's competitions. Your logo/business name will feature prominently on literature publicising your event, including our 20,000 programmes, and in some instances you will be able to erect an information stand and display banners. You will also be entitled to a number of free tickets to your event (or a choice of other events for those where entry is free). The amount of investment varies with the audience potential of the event.

General sponsors

Your logo/business name featured in 20,000 programmes and acknowledged elsewhere with prominence dependent on the amount of your investment (minimum £50).

Summer Festival

Now in its sixteenth year, the Festival incorporates a host of great events  and is growing every year – which is why we need your help!

There are lots of opportunities to get involved in the Festival, both in the planning stages with event planning, marketing, fundraising, administration, web design, graphic design, or on event days themselves including all aspects of putting the events together, from helping to set up stages and art exhibitions, to selling tickets and stewarding.

Whatever you would like to get involved in and whatever skills you have or hope to learn, we want to hear from you. The Festival is a great way to get to know more people and support an event that brings together the local community. Whether you are retired and would like something fun to get your teeth into, or you’re still at university and need some experience to improve your CV, you will be welcome and the benefits of being part of the team are numerous – not to mention fun!
