Dear potential sponsor

We’re delighted to invite you to be a sponsor for this year’s Hodge Hill Carnival which takes place on Saturday 14th July 2018. We are asking local business to sponsor this great event – or even use some of their advertising budgets to help.

The sponsor money will go towards the running cost of the event and the more sponsorship we get the bigger and better this year’s event will be; this year we particularly want to increase the FREE activities and workshops that are available to the community.

In 2017 the carnival took place on the St. Margaret’s Recreation ground, just off Bromford Lane. This enabled us to expand and provide a larger fair, more stall holders, more free workshops and activities, and a larger entertainment stage. Last year we welcomed approximately 3000 people from the Hodge Hill community and beyond. I have enclosed a copy of last year’s flyer for your information along with some photos and tweets from the event.

As a main sponsor you will get:

  • Your logo on all future mailing and advertising including: posters, flyers, the large pvc banners that will appear around the local area, twitter feed, Facebook page, local media and the carnival website.
  • A prime location for you to bring a gazeebo to advertise your business or charity on the day
  • Regular on the day mentions from the entertainment stage
  • Opportunities for you and your staff to get involved helping or giving out prizes
  • Prime position in the parade if you would like it

The plan for the 2018 includes:

    • Walking procession around Hodge Hill with school, community groups and businesses invited to get involved;
    • Carnival stage will hosts a selection of singers, musicians, dancers, drummers, jugglers, actors, poets, story-tellers… you name it!
    • Table-top/ gazebo stalls– Last year we had over 40 stalls
    • Fair ground – lots of rides and bouncy castles to draw the crowds in!
    • Characters – meat and greats for the children
    • Dr. Who look-a-like with his ‘Darlek’
  • 5 a side football tournament


To be a main sponsor we are looking for a donation of £500

If you are interest, please get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can add your name to all our media.

Yours faithfully,

Stuart Guest (Colebourne Primary School) & Revd Al Barrett (Hodge Hill Church)
