Become a Friend

Become a GAP Festival Friend

The GAP Festival is a locally run, community focused charity that relies on the generosity of volunteers, sponsors and individual donations to make it happen. 

Could you support our vibrant Festival by becoming a Festival Friend for a charitable donation of just £50? You can read below why Friends are a vital part of our team.

Give the gift of arts and culture

The GAP Festival is a stimulating blend of arts, education and entertainment that offers residents and visitors a cultural journey with top professional artists, the cream of local talent and many hands-on workshops offering new experiences for all ages.

Creating a vibrant and varied Festival programme requires significant resources. The Festival is a registered charity run by volunteers who work tirelessly to build a broad range of exciting performers, artists and our very own local and emerging talent.

Although we raise some financial support from sponsorship and grants, contributions from individuals are really important as each Friend who contributes is not just a source of revenue and a means to keep ticket prices affordable for all, but is also an important link between the Festival and the community.

As a Friend you will be invited to an exclusive Friends and Sponsors reception in recognition of the gift you have given to our community.
