Sponsor the festival

Being a festival sponsor is a fantastic way for you to support community-focused arts events in the Scottish Highlands

About story

As one of the longest-running arts festivals in Scotland, the festival is a recognised brand with a strong reputation for the excellence of its programming - and a great cause to get behind.

Thanks to the generosity of past event sponsors, we have been able to bring inspirational artists, performers, authors and speakers to Nairn for over twenty years.

We want to work with businesses and investors to ensure that the festival continues to bring new visitors to Nairn every year, while cementing the town’s reputation as a fun, vibrant and creative place to visit, and live.


Sponsorship Benefits

Brand Exposure

The festival is one of the Highlands longest running literature and arts festivals - and one of the key highlights in Scotland’s cultural calendar. We regularly receive national, regional and local press coverage, and all promotional activity around the festival will help get your brand in front of new audiences. Here’s how:

Festival Programme

All sponsors receive a listing in our printed festival programme. Headline and Associate sponsors logos are included in a prominent place, while Patrons and Supporters receive a listing with thanks.

Over 6,000 printed copies of the festival programme will be distributed to key public venues, cafes, restaurants and retail outlets within a thirty mile radius of the town. The programme is also available as a downloadable link on the website - and will be added to the festival archive once the event has passed.
