Rhythms of the World is a registered charity. We rely on the support of local, regional and national organisations to fund our work and, although we charge a small ticket price for the festival, it is not enough to cover the £260,000-£300,000 needed to host the festival each year. Our sponsors, advertisers and grant-givers provide the vital additional income we need to achieve this and to keep the ticket price as low as possible.
The festival also offers some amazing marketing opportunities for a range of companies. For more information about the organisations that were generous enough to support last year's festival, check out our sponsors page.
