Friends and Patrons

WE NEED YOU! BECOME A FRIEND OR PATRON OF THE 2013 FESTIVAL TODAY TO SUPPORT THE PROGRAMME AND ENJOY SPECIAL BENEFITS

For 16 years, with help from corporate sponsors and community funders, the Hamilton Gardens Summer Festival Foundation has made the arts affordable and accessible to all people from Hamilton and beyond.

The Festival attracts a diverse audience; children and families come back year after year to enjoy the amazing selection of children’s theatre that is available during the weekends; people come together after the traditional summer break to take in some twilight theatre, a late night comedy, an outdoor film or just to relax in Rogers Rose Garden on a sunny weekend afternoon listening to live music with a bottle of vino and a picnic.

We aim to keep around two thirds of the performances free for the public to attend. It’s important to the Foundation to provide a significant number of free events so that everyone in our community has the opportunity to experience a large cross-section of arts and culture.

We need your help!

We are looking for friends and patrons who feel as passionately about the Festival as we do!

Patrons and Friends play a vital role in ensuring the ongoing success of the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival. Your support allows us to attract and sustain a top quality programme, to commission new work, and to continue to provide a large percentage of free events for our community.

We look forward to you joining us for an exceptional programme of theatre, music, dance, film, comedy, literature and visual arts.
