Crystal Palace Festival organisers are thrilled to have secured sponsorship from a number of local businesses in the area, ensuring that this year’s festival will be one to remember. Neil Louth, the group managing director of Acorn, the main sponsor of the festival said:
“The Acorn Group are delighted to be the main sponsor of The Crystal Palace Festival. We already work closely with a number of schools and are regularly involved in helping to raise money for worthwhile causes in and around the local community. Acorn look forward to the festival being a great success whilst raising money for Friends of Westow Park who are working towards developing this local family park and improving the facilities for children”.
This year the festival will be held on Saturday 13 August with several smaller events running in the week leading up to the big day. The festival will include live music, poetry, theatre, comedy, film, food and fashion around the Crystal Palace Triangle with another festival hub in Westow Park.
The park will host arts workshops, sports and kids activities and entertainment for all the family. The festival is also supported by local solicitors Amphlett Lissimore. Frank Lissimore said, “We are delighted to be sponsors of the festival. We look forward to visitors to the festival being able to experience the cultural, musical and culinary delights of the area”.
The other platinum sponsor for the festival, local magazine, The Transmitter “is proud to bursting to be associated with an event that is at the heart of this vibrant, changing, infuriating and wonderful bit of London”.
Other businesses who have clambered on board so far include gold sponsors Printing Made Simple, Bambinos, Crystal Palace Antiques and Westow House, silver sponsors Willie Smart and Joanna’s and supporting sponsor Laurence Chandler Associates.
Noreen Meehan, lead festival organiser, is delighted with the support shown – “this wonderful investment and show of support for the festival mean that we can organise an amazing and inspiring event. This support will also lay the foundations for the Crystal Palace Festival to go from strength to strength in the future”.
