1 October 2010 — 5 June 2011

Early preparations are already under way for the 2011 Fal River Festival following its huge success this year.

Early preparations are already under way for the 2011 Fal River Festival following its huge success this year.

The event, which will take place from May 27 - June 5 in 2011, attracts more than 100,000 people and as a result takes the best part of a year to plan.

The 10 day not-for-profit community festival is a celebration of life on the Fal and is now one of the largest events of its type in Cornwall.

Festival director, Toby Budd, said they are now looking for a title sponsor: "The festival is continuing to grow year on year and is attracting more visitors than ever before. For a sponsor it represents a fantastic opportunity to reach thousands and thousands of people during 10 days of brilliant community events.

''We have put together an extremely attractive package that includes the title name, space in the programme, event tickets, various media opportunities, clothing, corporate entertainment, event branding, online promotion including such as the website, facebook and Twitter,plus many more attractive opportunities.''

The Fal River Festival receives funding from a wide range of organisations and sponsors to help organise the many activities that are put on.

AONB, Falmouth Business Improvement District (BID) and the local parish and town council all supported it in 2010, and it is hoped that they, along with many new supporters, will be on board for 2011.

Toby said: "We are supported by a number of businesses that sponsor a day during the festival including A&P Docks, Helpful Holidays, The Greenbank Hotel, Falmouth Harbour Commissioners, Pendennis Yachts, Steins and the Combined University of Cornwall (CUC).

"It is great to have so many local companies on board, but we are really keen for a title sponsor to support the event as a whole and reap the many benefits of this high profile opportunity."

Any business or individual interested in sponsoring the 2011 Fal River Festival should email Helen Mulhern on helen@eventy.co.uk or phone 01326 376273.
