Didsbury Arts Festival

Sponsors and Advertisers

DAF sponsors and advertisers enjoy reaching engaged local audiences through more than 35,000 printed programmes and posters, 5,000 Facebook and Twitter followers, 20,000 visits to the DAF website and through dedicated press exposure in both local and national newspapers, television, radio and online.

Hosting an event

We’re always keen to work with venues and discover interesting spaces to host our events and exhibitions. We work closely with a range of venues in Didsbury, from churches to swimming baths, and would love to hear from people wishing to become part of our network of venues as part of the 2019 festival and beyond.

Community Groups and Schools

Our work with community groups and local schools is a core focus of the festival and we are keen to connect with as many local groups and schools as possible to encourage people to create work as part of the festival programme and also be involved with a range of projects which we run in the lead up to and during the festival to encourage engagement in the festival.

We are keen to continue to develop our links with the local community and would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved with the festival: info@didsburyartsfestival.org
