Sponsorship Opportunities

The Southdowns Folk Festival is a not-for profit community group and all funding for the Festival is raised through fundraising, donations and ticket income.

The main objectives of the Southdowns Folk Festival are to:

  • Provide an accessible family cultural Festival across the town, with free entry to many events
  • Encourage young musicians from the area by running the `Sussex Young Folk Performers Competition`
  • Promote local growth, employment and tourism in the area by extending the tourism season and bringing new business to local providers
