As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the generosity of Patrons, Benefactors, Sponsors, trusts and grants to deliver our annual high quality programme. They help us to deliver transformational moments and unforgettable experiences to the region.

With about 14% of our income dependent on private donations, these are vital to ensure the continuing success of the Festival of Colour and Aspiring Conversations.

Thank you to our supporters!
