Basingstoke Music and Arts Festival was established in 1963 and is organised annually by a small group of dedicated volunteers. Committee members and venues have changed over the years and sections have been added or deleted according to public demand. Together with loyal support from teachers and performers who enter the Festival, the ongoing success of each annual event relies on financial help offered by companies and individuals within the local community.
Festival entries are received from a wide geographical area, including Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire. Many entrants are attracted as a result of visits to our website: www.basingstokemusicandarts.org.uk which contains Festival information, as well as entry forms and copies of the Syllabus which can easily be viewed and downloaded. Our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Basingstokemusicandartsfestival features items of topical information about the Festival.
Our committee invites sponsors to advertise in our 2022 Festival Programme, which will include details of programmes for all sections of the festival held over each of the three weekends. We estimate that at least 600 copies will be printed, offering a potentially valuable advertising window to a wide circulation of individuals and groups, including many friends, teachers and families of entrants taking part in each of our sections.   A full-page coloured advertisement would attract a fee of £120 with smaller advertisements charged pro-rata.
