We believe that all individuals, regardless of their backgrounds, should have the opportunity to enjoy literature and the arts.

From one-off donations to long-term partnership collaborations, the support from our sponsors has played a pivotal role in launching the festival, and establishing it for the future. The Festival Sponsors, Partners and Patrons are at the heart of what makes the Stonyhurst Literature and Film Festival distinctive and set apart from the other festivals across the country.
