You can help us to keep our community festivals free to access by making a donation (every little helps) or talking to us about one of our many opportunities to Sponsor us
Please help us to continue to offer our community festivals in Florence Park as FREE to access. FloFest (in June) and Finding the Light (in Nov) are both Free community events and we would like to keep them that way.
Every small donation helps us to keep up with the rising costs of all the boring, but essential, things like: toilets, fencing, cabling, first aid, lights, Fencing has increased from £336 in 2018 to £1223 in 2023 (an increase of 264%) Generators and cabling was £225 in 2018, now it's £2262 (a 787% increase in 5 years!!) Toilets were £270 in 2018 and are now £1224 .........you get the idea, costs are sky rocketing!!!
If you feel you can donate a little MORE then check out our SPONSORSHIP opportunities.
We have a number of opportunities for you to help with creating a difference in your community here in East Oxford. Check out a few of them here and get in touch or email us to discuss any further ideas you may have.
Sponsor a Loo :£150 Have your or your companies Name on the door of a Porta Loo for all those festival goers to see. A great advertising opportunity whilst making a difference.
Sponsor a Band : £200 Are you passionate about Music? We have 7/8 bands on our main stage each FloFest and are working up to a similar number at Finding the Light. We love to support local talent and musicians. We'd love to be able to give them a really great fee and your sponsorship would help massively with this & supporting grass roots musicians - keeping live music in oxford alive and healthy.
Sponsor a Community Caterer to have a free pitch : £300 Making a huge difference to a local community group who will have the opportunity to raise some essential funds through selling their food to our hungry festival goers whilst also getting their name and message out to the community.
Sponsor an Experience : £1,000 Each year at our summer festival we offer an experience that kids and families of our OX4 community might not normally get to take part in. Previously we have had archery, mountan biking and bouldering. These are offered as free to access and are enjoyed by hundreds of throughout the day - encouraging physical activity and new experiences.
Sponsor an Art Workshop Project : £1,000 The pride and feeling of conectivity that comes from being involved in an art project which can be showcased and continued at FloFest or Finding the Light can not be underestimated for many schools and community groups. We are pleased to have cultivated a close relationship with Fusion Arts who have worked with us in previous years.
Sponsor a Youth Music Project : £2,000 Encouraging youthful talent and developing connections with local schools and youth groups we work to present an occasion for school age musical talent to bring their community. It has become apparent that this is in need of a more focused approach and we would love to develop a number of workshops which will culminate in a spot on the Main stage at FloFest or Finding the Light.
