Lichfield District Council welcomes £1,500 grant from Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust to help stage 2013’s Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park.
Now in its fifteenth year, Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park is taking place on Saturday 7 September. This huge outdoor concert will feature The British Police Symphony Orchestra, the City of Lichfield Concert Band, children’s entertainment and a fireworks finale.
It’s an event that attracts thousands of people from across the region, and to keep the event free for everyone, Lichfield District Council approaches businesses and organisations to help it to raise the money needed to stage its outdoor concert extravaganza.
One such sponsor is Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust that has recently awarded the council a grant of £1,500.
Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have secured this very generous funding boost and we are so grateful to the trust for their continued support of Beacon Park.
“So far, we’ve managed to raise a third of the sponsorship needed to stage this year’s proms, so we are still urging anyone who would like to get involved in this fantastic evening of entertainment to get in touch.”
Sponsoring proms offers businesses a great way to reach thousands of local people and visitors. Sponsors can benefit from their logos appearing on posters, leaflets, the glossy programme, and on the Lichfield Proms website. Sponsors also feature in news stories and have prime seats at the event – right in front of the stage as well as VIP parking.
Sponsorship packages start from as little as £50 and companies can also take advantage of a special corporate entertainment package.
Alan Birch, Clerk to the Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust, said: “This is the seventieth anniversary of Colonel Swinfen Broun’s gift of 12 acres of land to Beacon Park, to extend the recreation grounds. Therefore, it is fitting for Swinfen Broun Charitable Trust to maintain its long association with this historic and beautiful park. Lichfield Proms is a wonderful community event that is both entertaining and culturally important, and we are pleased to support it.”
