When the festival began we were entirely grant funded, but as the years rolled by funding for the arts became more difficult to come by, to the point where we are now almost entirely supported by local business sponsorship.

We love our sponsors, without them our festival couldn’t go ahead and we certainly couldn’t run our free events without them.

A special mention should go out to our partners The Friars, The George and Marston’s Brewery, long standing partners and supporters of the festival.

Many thanks also to

Gold sponsors Bamboo Wine Bar and Budgen Motors

Silver Sponsors Bassa Villa and Bridgnorth Kitchens

Bronze Sponsors The Six ashes and the Bear

Please make sure you support them when you get chance


  • Marstons, The Friars and The George
