Become A Friend of Furness Tradition

We are currently working hard to put together a really good programme for our 19th annual Furness Tradition Festival in the best venues possible.

The aim is for one of those weekends of dance, song, tunes, stories and workshops that is just magic.  It’s a year’s worth of work for the main organisers who are all volunteers and worth every bit of the effort. 

Every extra penny we can raise just improves the festival, ensures the continuing work of Furness Tradition and the security of future festivals.

The festival is on the 7th to the 9th of July. Last year we sold more weekend tickets in advance of the festival than ever before.  This is fantastic and shows what support we have but as I’m sure we all are aware costs continue to rise and so the challenge of matching income with costs remains.

So, if you’re coming this year or hoping to come to the next one, please help us make this year’s festival as brilliant as it should be and help ensure it’s future!

Please consider sponsoring us for 2017.  Sponsorship does more than just raise money it gives visible support which helps with funding applications (and is really good for committee spirits to know we have some support!!) 

The terms are changed from previous years as we are now eligible for Gift Aid. You can pay online, just fill in the form below and pay by using BACS or use your regular debit or credit card. You don’t have to be a PayPal user.

We have made some changes to our sponsorship scheme, primarily because we are now eligible for Gift Aid.

Gift Aid
I would like Furness Tradition to treat all donations I have made in the last four years and until further notice as Gift Aid donations. I am a UK taxpayer and my annual Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax is at least equal to the amount of tax that all organisations I support will reclaim in the appropriate tax year - currently 25p for every £1. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.

We are also looking to identify businesses and individual patrons who are interested in working in partnership with us to promote and develop the Festival for the benefit of the community.

The Festival brings a large number of visitors into Ulverston for up to 4 days and the commercial benefit to the town is significant alongside the enrichment it brings to the town’s cultural experience.

The 2017 festival will be held from the 7th to the 9th of July. Last year we sold more weekend tickets in advance of the festival than ever before. 

The aim is for one of those weekends of dance, song, tunes, stories and workshops that is just magic.  It’s a year’s worth of work for the main organisers who are all volunteers and it is certainly worth every bit of the effort. 

Are you interested in working in partnership with us to promote and develop the Festival for the benefit of the community?

This could be a straightforward donation, or could be to sponsor a specific event at the festival. For example, sponsorship of a concert under your company banner would be £200 – £500 depending on the event, a tuition workshop would be £100.

If you are interested in talking to us about financial or ‘in kind’ sponsorship – either as a corporate/business sponsor or an individual patron please email us or phone 01229 588290 .

Furness Tradition is a registered charity No 1123291 and thus your donation is deductible from the total profits of your business when calculating Corporation Tax.
