Sponsor us

Will you help us celebrate our 10th?

This year, more than ever, we are determined to light up our streets in a celebration of the creativity, inclusivity and wonderful spirit of BS3.

And we can’t do it without the support of local businesses and groups who help make the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade Project a reality.

Did you know that by supporting the project you will be…

9/10 local people say the project makes them feel more positive towards the area. By sponsoring the project, you will be directly helping us all celebrate our vital and inclusive community. And we need this right now.

Kids from across the whole of BS3 get involved in this inclusive creative project, and get their moment in the light when they show the world their fantastic lanterns.

The project sees roughly 5,000 visitors to BS3 each event day. That’s a great opportunity to remind people why they should visit, eat, drink and shop and move to this fantastic neighbourhood.

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.
