Freedom Festival works to deliver amazing artistic experiences for the people and the city of Hull.

We achieve this through the amazing support we have from our sponsors which enable us to function all year round and make Hull one of the UK’s most exciting cities.  Our work brings together the people of Hull to celebrate its richness, diversity and bring pride to our great city.

Sponsoring the work of Freedom Festival aligns your brand and your ambitions to ours:

  • Increasing access to the arts and engaging hard to reach audiences – through year-round projects and accessible performances
  • Encouraging, nurturing and supporting talent to emerge in Hull through work in the community, with education providers and with professional artistic companies, which encourages people to reach their potential and beyond
  • Developing a programme of international significance in Hull, positioning Hull as a creative, vibrant and diverse city
  • Throughout the year programme to support community engagement in arts and cultural activities delivered by and through Freedom Festival
  • Creating opportunities for local communities to participate in and perform at Freedom Festival
  • Supporting local skills development through our volunteers’ programme
  • Building local creative capacity by mentoring new and emerging artists and increasing open commissions for work which can be displayed/ performed at Freedom

We reach around 100,000 people each year through the Festival events.

We work with around 2,000 people in the community each year as part of the Festival delivery.

We have widespread brand recognition nationally and internationally with circa 500,000 people aware of the Festival each year.

Increased spend in Hull amounts to over £3.5 million for each Festival

Your sponsorship enables us to do all of this and we can do even more with more sponsors and support.

We have many sponsorship opportunities available to suit all budgets, ranging from year-round activity, to smaller scale sponsor packages supporting specific aspects of the festival. We work collaboratively with all of our supporters, taking time to understand organisational objectives and responding to those needs with a tailor-made sponsorship programme.
