How local businesses support Brighton Festival - part 2

7 Jul 2014

DMH Stallard

A large law firm with offices across the South East, they have been a loyal and steady supporter for many years. 

Each festival they choose to support an event from the books & debate programme and this year they sponsored David McCandless, Information is Beautiful.

They also like to host a reception for clients around the event and sometimes the speaker and/or writer is available to meet them post show, so offering them a more bespoke experience.

This year David MacCandless joined the group after his sell out show to chat about his book and sign copies.

DMH Stallard is one of the earliest supporters of the Brighton Festival. Our relationship and support goes back more than 40 years and previous DMH Stallard Chairman, Derek Sparrow was founder solicitor of the Festival Trust. Over that time DMH Stallard has always maintained active support of the festival in various forms.

Nowadays, it is an important part of how the firm supports the regional community by promoting the festival to the many businesses and people we work with from Brighton and the South Coast, the wider South East and London. Each year the firm chooses to host an event around a particular festival production to which we invite guests from the Brighton community. Scott Garner, Business Development at DMH Stallard

Mayo Wynne Baxter

Sussex based solicitors Mayo Wynne Baxter have worked with us since 2010 and they continue to support us in a number of ways, both financially but also in-kind, offering legal advice and consultation across the organisation.

Their sponsorship this year enabled us to present Guest Director, Hofesh Shechter’s new performance Sun at the start of the festival. We are extremely grateful for their support.

The exposure of our name alongside prestigious events is very important for our profile. Clients remark positively on our involvement which helps cement our position in the city’ Martin Williams, Partner, Mayo Wynne Baxter

University of Sussex

The university is a long standing supporter and this year they chose to sponsor the fantastic Russian theatre piece and UK premiere of Opus no 7 by the Dmitry Krymov Lab.

They hosted a pre-show reception and interval drinks in the venue and a few of their guests met with Director Dmitry Krymov afterwards, gaining a private audience with one of Russian theatre’s most influential figures.

We have an excellent relationship with the university and greatly value our on-going collaboration.
