FUNDS FOR FOWEY FESTIVAL
Why we need your help
We are reaching out for your help to raise emergency funds and we need your support.
The du Maurier Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature, due to take place in May 2020 has been postponed to the autumn, as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. It is our sincere hope that it will be able to run in the autum, for its survival and that of our lovely town.
Many of you will understand that the Fowey Festival is good for the business in Fowey, by attracting visitors from all over the world, but we are on the edge of losing the Fowey Festival for lack of funds. We are desperate to keep the Festival going, not just because of its popularity and heritage, but because we need it to be there after lockdown, so we can help the town of Fowey once again attract visitors which in turn will help local businesses get back on their feet. Fowey will not be the same lovely place without the independent range of shops, places to stay, lovely pubs and great restaurants.
If you can make a donation that would be very much appreciated, but if you are unable to do so, please help us by sharing this message as widely as possible. If you have already donated please accept our grateful thanks.
Fowey Festival derives most of its income through ticket sales and the lack of a Festival in May, due to Covid-19, is stretching our cash flow and our ability to continue working with all the preparation needed to put on a Festival. We have postponed the May Festival to late September, and it is our hope that it will be able to go ahead. Either way, we need to find a way to survive both financially and to enable the work we do behind the scenes to continue.
We thank you for your consideration and support. In the meantime please stay safe and we hope to bring a Fowey Festival to you in the autumn and or next May. Let’s all work together to make this happen.
With thanks from the whole of the Festival Team.
