We work hard to raise the funds for the Festival, as it is important to us to keep as many of the activities free to take part in as possible.  If you’d like to help with that, please text BCFE18 £2 to 70070.  (Make it more if you would like!) All donations via JustTextGiving by Vodafone will go towards the activities at this year’s Festival.

If you would like to know about sponsorship opportunities or how to get involved as a supporter of the Festival you can email us:  or read our Sponsorship Document.  We offer readymade sponsorship packages, see the Sponsor Document for examples, but we are also happy to tailor a package for your needs and wants, just get in touch.

There are lots of ways to be part of this fantastic Festival and help showcase Burnley’s unique canalside environment.

We are also looking for volunteers to join the Festival team and help out in the run-up to the Festival, over the weekend itself or both!   If you are interested in gaining work experience, meeting new people or simply want to support a community event, please get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Our grateful thanks to our supporters in 2018:
