Sand, Sea & Spray 2015: Sponsorship opportunities

Sand Sea & SprayAfter a 1 year break, Sand, Sea & Spray urban art festival is back for 2015!… and we’re looking for event sponsors to help us to bring to Blackpool so that everyone can enjoy great art in their favourite seaside town.

Taking place from Friday 10 to Sunday 12 July, see a number of outdoor galleries created by 30 leading UK and international street artists. Based on 2013 figures, we aim to reach over 20,000 people at the live paint days, as we will be working from a number of highly visible sites in and around the town centre. The festival also includes a Q & A session with international artists, a hip-hop themed music event, an information point, art shop and a series of school and community based workshops.

With sponsorship packages starting at £125, we can offer a range of ways to promote your organisation including a presence on the event website, social media mentions, logos and advertisements on our printed promotional materials (20,000 – 40,000 print run with distribution) and announcements from live event comperes.
