Sponsorship Opportunity of Hungerford Extravaganza 2018

The 26th Hungerford Extravaganza will be on Friday 14 December. This popular annual event is being organised by a new committee within the Hungerford Chamber of Commerce which is busy working to ensure that all necessary logistics such as road closures, safety barriers, insurances and promotional materials are in place.

Bookings of the inimitable Reading Scottish Pipe Band, fairground and other attractions have been secured and as in previous years, local charities and clubs will be given the opportunity to have stalls to raise funds for their social causes.

The Extravaganza attracts thousands of visitors, many of whom travel considerable distances to enjoy the event under the canopy of our fabulous Christmas lights. Of course our pubs, restaurants, other hostelries and shops that stay open on the night benefit from the immediate boost in trade.  But others, including those who operate away from the High Street, can gain from the uplift of goodwill towards our town.

The event costs approximately £13,000 to organise and run, and this is only possible with the generous support of local companies and businesses.

We would be very grateful for your help.
