Innovation Founders

More plus

If you have a pioneering and adventurous spirit, please give your personal support to the creation of exciting new projects and commissions.

As an Innovation Founder you would join a group of people that includes Festival patrons, philanthropists and champions - all of whom recognise the value of encouraging great artistic experiences for everyone.

There are three levels of Innovation Founders: Pioneers, Adventurers and Explorers.

In return the Festival can offer some unique experiences that could include:

  • Invitations to Festival Launches and VIP Receptions
  • Bespoke tour of Festival commissions, installations and events
  • Meeting some of the Festival’s creative team and artists
  • Help you plan your Festival visit and book your tickets
  • Acknowledgement of your support on the Festival website

To discuss becoming an Innovation Founder, please contact Lucy Davies, Executive Director on or 01908 280831
