Macclesfield Barnaby Festival is a Registered Charity, powered by volunteers.  As well as raising money from public funds, trusts and foundations and receiving gifts from individuals, we rely on financial support and sponsorship from the private sector.

Since 2010 we have reinvented the centuries-old tradition, raised the town’s profile as a creative place and helped make it Macclesfield a better place to live, work and play.  That has to be good for business!

There are a range of sponsorship packages available, please contact mandy@barnabyfestival.org.uk for more information.

Could your company help us ‘in-kind’ by offering services free of charge? For instance, we are hugely grateful to Janhill Estates who have provided us with a small office, free of charge, since 2013.
