Why Support?

The Windsor Festival International String Competition has flourished since its foundation in 2008, and we look forward to continuing to implement our vision for the competition over the coming years as we develop and increase its profile and position on both the British and international competition scene.

Our vision is to build strong relationships with the next generation of performers; to ensure that talent is nurtured, encouraged and supported.

This Competition is an important and integral addition to Windsor Festival, one of the most prestigious and renowned Festivals in the Country, which celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2009. The Festival, and the International String Competition, benefit from an association with Windsor; in itself an international brand.

To achieve our objectives, we need support from sponsors, foundations and trusts.

There a number of ways in which to support the Windsor Festival International String Competition, and the following opportunities present significant branding, profile and pr opportunities, as well as unique hospitality benefits, and can of course be tailored to suit an individual organisations' corporate objectives and budget.
