BiFest Wales supporters and volunteering

BiFest Wales supporters

BiFest Wales relies on the support of the venue, bands and musicians, volunteers, and companies who donate food and raffle prizes to make the event a success. Without this support we would not be able to run BiFest Wales and keep entry prices low.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for 2017. We are looking for a second sponsor, due to increases in prices. If you’re interested in sponsoring BiFest Wales 2017 opportunities are available for £50 to £200. Please contact Bicymru@yahoo.co.uk

Without the support of bands and performers, who play for expenses only; donations of raffle prizes; donation of refreshments; and donations of design, printing and other support we would not be able to run BiFest Wales. We are also extremely grateful to everyone who ran workshops and volunteered for BiFest Wales 2016. As a community organisation with only a small income from donations Bi Cymru/Wales relies on the excellent support of local communities to keep entry prices low and run this event.
