With a summer of cancelled events looming across the UK, Rivington Terraced Gardens is lifting the spirits of music fans by holding a music festival from 16th-18th July; giving local businesses the opportunity to pledge their support too.


Set to raise vital maintenance funds for the gardens, all money raised by the Rivington Music Festival will go to supporting Rivington Heritage Trust in its work to preserve the historic beauty spot.


Organisers are appealing to local businesses to become sponsors and gain publicity at the three-day festival, which is headlined by rock bands, Toploader and Republica.  The ‘Friday Legends’ event features Bez from The Happy Mondays, currently starring in the Vindaloo Two Euros 2020 anthem video, alongside musicians and broadcasting icons, Mark Radcliffe and Clint Boon from Inspiral Carpets and XS Manchester.


With sponsorship opportunities ranging from £50-£1000, supporting businesses will feature on social media and the main screen at the event, with branding placement where practical.  A range of options are available, from sponsoring casks of beer, to event lighting, tents, security staff and food and drink vouchers for volunteers.


Andrew Suter, heritage programmes manager at Rivington Heritage Trust who are organising the 3-day music festival said: “Rivington Terraced Gardens have such an important place in people’s hearts and local businesses benefit in many ways from having this special attraction on their doorstep.  As a charity, we’re funded entirely by donations and preserve the gardens through the efforts of our amazing volunteers.


“We now it has also been challenging times for many local businesses too but we are reaching out to those who can to come onboard and help us to bring an enjoyable and much needed event in these difficult times.


“We have gone to great lengths to ensure that our festival goers can enjoy themselves in an environment that will have precise COVID safety measures in place; and we have so many sponsorship opportunities available for businesses to join us and play their part too.  What better way than to lift the gloom and celebrate summer than by getting into the festival spirit!”
