Thanks to all our festival partners

A town-based festival of the size and complexity of AWF takes a lot of organising, money and hard work. So those on the AWF team who plan the event take this opportunity to thank the sponsors and all the other volunteers for their support and dedication. It really is a fact that without their commitment, this festival - run by and for the community - just wouldn’t happen. So please take a bow.


We also appreciate the goodwill of the many hundreds of Alresford residents whose town is turned on its head on the third Sunday each May. We hope that when the festival “comes to town”, they get out and enjoy it along with the many thousands of visitors who flock here every year.

The festival could not exist without our sponsors and we take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to them for their generous financial support.
