Swindon Fringe Needs You!

Sponsor the Fringe

We offer sponsorship and hospitality packages to suit all budgets - with prices from just £50.


This will be Swindon Fringe’s eight year, and we’ve grown from putting on shows in our founder’s house in our first year, to attracting over 1000 festival goers last year, with aims to substantially increase that this year. We regularly attract positive, local press coverage and aim to increase this with our 2020 Festival plans.


If you’re an employer, you may already know that Swindon can be a tricky place to attract and retain staff as it doesn’t have a great reputation for culture and leisure. By supporting Swindon Fringe Festival, you’ll actively help to change this by helping us present high quality performing and visual arts in Swindon. And enabling local audiences to see shows they wouldn’t normally get to see here. You’ll also help to develop the local arts scene by providing an affordable, high profile stage for performers, many of whom use the Fringe as a springboard for professional careers, including performing at Edinburgh Festival and beyond. And you’ll help to develop the skills of the local people who make up the Fringe team, who'd like to build their skills to put on more events in Swindon, and help change our unfair reputation as a cultural desert.


In sponsoring us, you’ll align yourself with our audiences and get your brand to them in a variety of ways. We can offer you brand presence and sponsor credits in our programme, on posters, our website, and social media. We also have opportunities for in-venue brand promotion during the Festival itself. You can sponsor the Fringe as a whole or certain strands, such as family shows or comedy.


We offer packages to suit all needs and budgets. For more information, please contact Allie at

Advertise With Us


We print over 10,000 copies of our programme, which is distributed across Swindon and beyond. Place an advert in our programme and get your business noticed while supporting Swindon’s cultural development. We also have opportunities for in-venue advertising during the Festival itself.
