Calling for sponsors & volunteers
With a growing festival comes growing costs. So to secure the future of the festival we need more sponsors and volunteers.So much is achieved by our team of volunteers and most of the bands play at vastly reduced rates (or for free) because they love what we do and they believe passionately in keeping live music alive, but some corners cannot be cut. Safety, security, stages, lights and red tape all carry a larger bill as we grow.
Plus the addition of a huge FREE family arena three years ago makes the festival special and hugely popular with families – but of course, there is a cost to provide this. Much is covered by tickets sales (and for that we are ever grateful), but it is our sponsors who enable us to make the festival happen in the first place and their early commitment helps us secure the festival’s financial status to plan ahead. Throughout the last nine years we have lost and gained sponsors, but despite the unfailing support of our founding key sponsors; First Option, Thomas Miller Creative, Mint Signs and CleverTouch (as well as numerous other smaller but vital sponsors), we will struggle to donate to charities this year.
The AMF team is small, we love what we do and it’s an honour to be able to host the festival in our town, but we need more people to help organise and deliver the festival if it’s to continue to be something we are all proud of and enjoy. Your time, energy and skills in many areas including financial, operational and organisational would be much appreciated. AMF has become an annual event for us all – but to continue to be able to put this on we really do need businesses to support us financially and individuals to help us deliver. 2019 is our 10th festival and since the start we’ve grown from a few hundred visitors and two stages to over 4,500 festival goers and five stages.
We are an independent music festival and we have so many ideas to improve and develop but we need your help to do this. So if you want to support the festival and help out in any way to make our 10th anniversary even better, as well as raising much needed funds for important and deserving causes – please get in touch. We are in the heart of Alresford, have nice coffee and a big tin of biscuits!
From The AMF Team and our charities’ THANK YOU and we look forward to hearing from you!
