Our sponsors recognise the importance of arts and culture to the life and economy of a thriving city.

The Festival plays a key role in supporting the economic, social, cultural and educational prosperity of our city. Arts and culture in Derby is flourishing and the Festival is now well established, in just six years, as the East Midlands’ most successful literary festival.

Local businesses recognise that a city with a thriving cultural life attracts the very best employees. Many of our sponsors have been loyal supporters of the Festival since the start and have enjoyed the benefits of being part of a successful event. We have welcomed some of the most successful international authors to our Festival to inspire adults and children. We also support local authors and new writers to take the first steps in their publishing careers.

We have a range of sponsorship packages on offer. We will recognise your support by including your logo in our programme and on our website and provide you with tickets to Festival events and a special Sponsors’ Reception.
