Calling all Chiswick businesses
Commercial opportunities at
this year’s Bedford Park Festival
Bedford Park Festival every June is one of the biggest events
in the Chiswick calendar - a fortnight of fun, food, fancy dress,
film, photography, art, crafts, music, dance, drama, poetry, architecture
and gardens, starting with the Green Days Fete on June 7th and
8th. Last year’s was particularly successful, as you can see at
the website: www.bedfordparkfestival.org.
This year’s is just two months away and we’d like to hear from
local businesses who’d like to be involved.
Organised by St Michael & All Angels Church, the Festival
raises thousands of pounds for local causes. This year we have
pledged to raise £25,000 for St Mary’s Convent & Nursing
Home Rebuilding Appeal. After more than a hundred years, they
face closure unless they can raise over £1.5m to meet new
Last year well over 50 local companies supported the Festival
- including ChiswickW4.com,
Sainsburys, Bushells, Fletcher Estates, Faron Sutaria, Granada
Education, Snappy Snaps, Park Lane West, London Underground and
Carlton Television. You can see their names on the website (via
the sunflower labelled “Supporters”). Many are already signed
up for this year.
Some companies paid hundreds of pounds to sponsor events and
marquees. Many restaurants donated free meals as prizes in the
highly successful Square Meals Tombola. Traders in Turnham Green
Terrace mounted a Jubilee Treasure Hunt for children, and many
organisations took stands in the craft marquee or on the Green.
We will shortly be approaching firms to take part in this year’s
Square Meals Tombola and the Turnham Green Treasure Hunt, and
there are still a few sponsorship opportunities for Festival events
and marquees at the Green Days Fete. The Crafts Fair and Band
Stand remain unsponsored so far - both offer attractive opportunities
for banners and other forms of promotion.
If you would like to be involved in any way, or want further
details of opportunities, please e-mail the St Michael’s Parish
Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
