Support the Festivals and make a real impact

Posted on

The finest writers, quick-witted speakers, mind-expanding science and world class music…with your support the Festivals can continue to thrive.

Over the course of 2013 many of the most thrilling writers, erudite speakers, articulate scientists, gifted composers, and exciting musicians of our time will engage LIVE with hundreds of thousands of people in Cheltenham – in venues ranging from the small and intimate to the grand and breath-taking – from The Inkpot to Gloucester Cathedral!

This year Cheltenham Festivals will also inspire more than 24,000 children and adults through education projects and free events, bringing the pleasure and fascination of science, literature and music to a greater audience than ever before.

We work to keep ticket prices as low as possible and run free events to give everyone the opportunity to engage with the very best of the arts, entertainment and science. Ticket income alone accounts for just 40% of the Festivals’ operational costs and as a charity what we achieve is only possible with the generosity of people that support us.

Every donation makes a real difference to our work and we really do appreciate the support we receive, so please give as much as you are able to when purchasing your Literature Festival tickets.
Your support will give others the chance to be inspired by the Festivals, and enables us to bring world class events to Cheltenham – year after year. Whether your donation funds tickets for school children to experience a Festival event, or gives an author their first opportunity to appear in front of a Festival audience, it really will make an impact.
