Become a Corporate Partner

Ahead of our 70th anniversary in 2018, we aim to re-ignite our Festivals for a new era and bring the city alive with amazing artists and creative opportunities. We are looking for strategic partners who can collaborate with us to celebrate what makes the city special and give a global platform to Bath’s unique creative footprint.

We want to work side by side with our partners to deliver shared objectives, not just logos in brochures. We are ambitious in what we want to achieve for our city and know that we need to find equally ambitious partners to bring our ideas to life. We have streamlined what we offer so that a smaller number of partners will share in the assets available, enhancing the overall value of the partnership.

You will be embedded in our communications strategy from the very start of our 7 month marketing campaign. In addition to typical brand activation opportunities we will also be able to shape engagement around your needs – whether that’s hosting free activities in the Festival for families to explore ideas like design or sustainability or special pop-up office concerts for your staff or clients.

If you are interested in finding out more about how your business could benefit from a partnership, please call 01225 462231
