Sponsor Packages

Sponsor the project in our 10th year!

Are you thinking about sponsoring the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade Project and wondering how your business or group would benefit from supporting us? There are so many great reasons!

9-in-10 local people say the Lantern Parade makes them feel more positive towards the area. By sponsoring the project, everyone will know that you are part of the vital and inclusive community that is BS3.

Since the project began, tens of thousands of children have had their moment in the light.

The Parade attracts roughly 5,000 people to BS3 each event day. That’s some serious footfall, and some serious profile-raising opportunities for all businesses in the area.

2/3 of people who visit BS3 regularly are more likely to use our sponsors because they make the Lantern Parade project happen.

Our sponsors love being part of the Parade

Check the images below to hear from a couple of our long-time friends and supporters think of the project.

Barcan Kirby, 2019 Leading Lights

Despite the windy weather on Saturday, we had a fantastic evening showing off Dr Dottapus at the Bedminster Winter Lanterns parade.

We were proud to be a Leading Light for the event, which lights up the streets of #Bedminster in a celebration of creativity and community.

Bedminster Pharmacy, 2019 Band Partners

Events like the Lantern Parade are awe-inspiring. Young and old, working in partnership to organise, participate and support, is the unique Bemmy Spirit.
