SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE INAUGURAL HASTINGS INTERNATIONAL PIANO FESTIVAL

Hastings International Piano Festival is being curated to raise funds for both our planned programme of educational outreach opportunities for children and young people in Hastings, Rye and the East Sussex surrounding area and our globally respected International Piano Concerto Competition – a competition for young professional pianists, which our charitable organisation has produced for the past 15 years and attracted entries from 27 countries in 2019.

The inaugural festival, taking place in February/March 2020, will be the biggest festival of its kind in Hastings for a generation and will be a multi-genre celebration of the piano welcoming globally renowned artists including pop, classical, jazz and contemporary musicians and singer/songwriters. In addition to our programme of world-class concerts, we will give life changing music learning opportunities to young people during the two-week festival period. We will be one of the only festivals in the UK to offer free tickets, workshops and music making masterclasses for children and young people, whilst maintaining a programme of headline performances.

We are looking for the support of companies like yours to make the festival a huge success. We have sponsorship packages to suit all budgets and your company could become a headline sponsor of one of the festival concerts, helping us to raise vital funds for the long-term growth of our educational programme. As a sponsor your company’s profile will be featured across all festival media, giving you regional, national and international exposure and access to our large and varied audience and our artist’s fanbases. If you choose to be a headline sponsor, you will also receive tickets to your preferred concert for your colleagues and clients, and will be invited to a VIP Gala Dinner with the artist following the event.

If you wish to discuss how you may support the festival and our important educational outreach work then please contact us on 01424 882944 or info@hastingsinternationalpiano.org.
