What our sponsors say...

'We recently increased our sponsorship to become the headline sponsor of the Stratford Literary Festival. The organisers are proactive and efficient, and considerate of all their sponsors. The organisation of the Festival is impressive, with all our events well attended and properly branded. I’m looking forward to continuing our support of the festival.'

‘It is always a delight to be part of such a wonderful, local event. The literary history of Stratford-upon-Avon is treasured by all and celebrating this with such a well organised and enjoyable festival is certainly a calendar highlight to us. It even inspired one of our recent designs – the Author table lamp, which was featured at the Stratford Literary Festival in 2018’.
Nicola McGuirk, Managing Director,
David Hunt Lighting
