Why sponsor the festival?

By supporting the Western Park charity beer festival, you will make a genuine difference to our local community…

The Western Park Beer Festival aims to turn every £1 in sponsorship into £3 for our chosen charity. By sponsoring a firkin, your £100 will be converted into £300 for Menphys, a charity which helps disabled children and their families in Leicester and Leicestershire. Your donation will also support Dovelands Primary School, the venue of this year’s festival.

The festival is not for profit and run solely for the benefit of the local community. All proceeds are ploughed back into Leicester and Leicestershire. The festival itself provides an opportunity for the people of Western Park and those further afield to come together and enjoy a good variety of mostly local beer and some fine local food.

A genuine business opportunity.

While supporting the charity beer festival will give you a little warm glow, we know warm glows don’t pay the bills. Fortunately, your support offers a tangible business opportunity too.

As the festival sponsor or a firkin sponsor, you, your staff and clients will be invited to our exclusive VIP tasting event before the festival opens. The tasting will be led by an industry professional and all guests will be invited to sample our stable of delicious beers, during a casual networking opportunity with fellow sponsors.

In addition to your business being associated with the festival, your brand will also be included on printed materials. You will also have the opportunity to place adverts within our programme, website, and on our Facebook page and Twitter account. The event will also be promoted in The Leicester Mercury, on BBC Radio Leicester and in smaller local media.

By supporting the festival your company name will be placed into 2000+ Western Park households, with 800 attendees expected over the two days. This will happily align your company with our efforts to improve the local community through the unifying medium of beer.

WPBF 2015 Stats

This year’s charitable cause.

Each year we choose a local charity or good cause to receive the proceeds from the festival. This year we are supporting Menphys, a charity caring for children and young people with mental and physical disabilities and their families.

Menphys was founded in 1969 and provides a range of vital services in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The charity needs to raise £500,000 annually to maintain and develop its work in supporting friendship, sport and leisure activities for its service users.
