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

From a one-off donation to long-term partnership collaborations, support from sponsorship will play a pivotal role in launching the festival and establishing it for the future.

The Festival sponsors and partners will be at the heart of what makes this Festival of Literature and Film distinctive and set apart from other festivals across the country.

Sponsorship opportunities are bespoke and tailor made to cater for individual’s specific requirements. If you are interested in working with the College to support our vision please contact Stonyhurst Enterprises and we would be happy to discuss the benefit packages available to sponsors and partners.
