Important Announcement regarding Festival of Sound 2013: 15th September 2013

The Festival of Sound 2013 that was due to take place on the 15th September 2013 at various sites across the Horsham Town Centre has been cancelled due to lack of sponsorship.

The previous two years of the festival had received great PR and interest to the local community but with our primary sponsor entering administration at the end of July and other sponsors not being able to make up the financial void to run the festival at a similar level to previous years. It is with regret that the organisers had to make the difficult decision to cancel the event.

We wish we could run the event without sponsorship, but as a free entry event we need to be able to generate the revenue to pay for the ever-increasing costs of first aid, security, crowd management, insurance and event infrastructure required to make the event possible.

The festivals core aim was to raise money for local and national charities so this decision was certainly not taken lightly.

The organisers would like to thank those you have invested time and money already into 2013 and hope you will stick with us for future events.

If you have any questions regarding this then please feel free to email jamief@festivalofsoundhorsham.com or if you would be interested in supporting the Festival of Sound for future events then please contact us via our Face book page or by email to jamief@festivalofsoundhorsham.com

Festival of Sound was set up in the summer of 2011 as a non-profit-making community project to bring the people of Horsham FREE outdoor live music events.

Festival of Sound is made up of a small committee of people who work very hard in a voluntary capacity to bring you great music in Horsham town centre. We are forever indebted to our growing army of volunteers, this includes musicians, media designers, sound engineers, stage managers and bucket shakers who not only help out at our annual festival in September, but also support our many projects throughout the year.

We rely solely on the generosity of our sponsors and donations from individuals in the community, and of course all the highly talented local musicians, who without Festival of Sound would not be possible.

If you or your company are interested in sponsoring or donating please email jamief@horshamfestivalofsound.com for further details.
