First Sponsor for Fal River Festival 2011

9 December 2010 — 5 June 2011

A & P Group is the first sponsor to sign up for day sponsorship of next year’s Fal River Festival.

The marine engineering experts have chosen to sponsor another year of this hugely popular river celebration. Celebrating life on and around the river Fal, the Festival which will take place from May 27 - June 5 in 2011, attracts more than 100,000 people to over 150 events making it one of the largest festivals of its type in Cornwall.

In addition to the day sponsorship A&P is supplying tugs to support the Beer Fleet. This is the dramatic transfer of beer kegs from Skinner's Brewery in Truro down the River Fal to the Discovery Quay in Falmouth for the all important Opening Ceremony. Many marine vessels join the parade, from lifeboats to kayaks, which all makes for a unique and colourful start to the Festival.

Peter Child, Managing Director of the A & P Group explains the Festival's appeal: "A&P is delighted to continue sponsoring this great local event which directly benefits many of our employees and local suppliers. I personally love the 15 mile River Fal walk which we have done for the last two years with many friends and our two dogs. To be able to link the land and sea routes and enjoy three walks in one day is tremendous. It is also a good way to celebrate the importance of the whole maritime industry to Falmouth and Cornwall."

Festival Sponsorship and Corporate Relationship Manager for the Fal River Festival, Helen Mulhern is delighted that the A & P Group has signed up first. "The day sponsors of the Fal River Festival help to ensure the survival of this vibrant community extravaganza. The Festival is well loved so it is a great opportunity for the A & P Group to reach over a hundred thousand people through its sponsorship."

There are a limited number of day sponsorship opportunities available and a unique opportunity for one title sponsor in 2011, as well as the launch of the Friends Of Fal River Festival with a range of benefits for just £75. If your company is interested in sponsoring an element of the Fal River Festival then please contact Helen on 01326 376273 helen@eventy.co.uk
