Steampunks of Gloucestershire are seeking sponsorship as they provide family-friendly charitable events to the local community.
Steampunks of Gloucestershire – We are a community organisation that runs family-friendly charitable events in Gloucestershire, in the last 30 months we have raised over £13000 for charities in Gloucestershire. Our last event in Gloucester City brought over 1800 people through the doors of the Folk of Gloucester over two days. We work with local venues such as the Folk, St Mary de Crypt Church, Woodchester Mansion Trust, and the Gloucester Civic Trust. And our events and the numbers attending are growing massively, benefiting not just the venues but the whole city. We have done all this in the last 30 months with no outside funding and no sponsorship. Our events are now high-profile in the city and have a growing reputation. What we need is some sponsorship to expand these events (twice a year); pay for proper publicity, book big-name acts for the evening music events, and bring in more street entertainment. We don’t need much as we have done all this on no budget so far. What would a sponsor get? Your name clearly associated with the fastest-growing free festivals in the West Country.
We are Steampunks and we are part of the most inclusive, dynamic, and creative subculture there is. Our events are always family friendly. Our demographic proudly crosses all ages, genders, races and cultures. We reach out to everyone from small children to retired adults, entire families to the whole LGBTQIA+ community.
Key Dates and Timings
We run our events twice a year in Gloucester city centre. We run our first event at Woodchester Mansion last Mayday and will be returning there next year.
