Sponsor Barnaby

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!

See the Barnaby Festival 2014 Evaluation Summary to find out about the Festival’s legacy.

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

Support us

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.


Macclesfield Barnaby Festival is a Registered Charity (no. 1151155) promoting the arts Macclesfield.  Why not make a one off or small regular donation?  Tax payers can increase the value of a donation to Barnaby by 25% through Gift Aid, and higher rate tax payers are eligible for tax relief.
