“It’s great to showcase what we do”


Base Architects love to use Shrewsbury Food Festival and Shropshire Oktoberfest as a place to build their client relationships, make new connections, and let their team have fun, with a VIP experience.

At Shrewsbury Food Festival they have opted to have their own VIP tipi area branded up, where colleagues and clients mix with friends and family, and also get to enjoy the whole festival. At Shropshire Oktoberfest they’ve enjoyed exclusive beer tastings and access to the VIP area.

Bryn Jones from Base shares his thoughts on working with Shropshire Festivals…

Why do you sponsor Shropshire Festivals?

Sponsoring Shropshire Festivals is a great opportunity to be involved with a really great range of events with other like-minded businesses, and it’s great to showcase what we do to Shropshire and the local economy.

What do you get out of sponsoring one of the events?

There’s always loads of people there that we know both professionally and personally. It’s great to have that kind of exposure that the festivals give us as a business. They’re so well attended, it’s a bit of a no brainer for us as really.

How has sponsoring one of the events helped your business?

We get a very prominent spot at the Shrewsbury Food Festival, which enabled us to really showcase what were about as a company, promote the brand and just really get our message out there in terms of what were about as a company.

What’s your favourite event ran by Shropshire Festivals?

I’d like to say Oktoberfest for obvious reasons, but the best one for the business is the Shrewsbury Food Festival. Again, it’s a great turn out and a really prominent location in terms of where we’re situated in the festival and the team can’t do enough for you. It works really well for us as a company.

What would you say to someone who is looking to sponsor Shropshire Festivals but is on the fence?

Do your research and have a look at the past events. I think they speak for themselves really. They’re really well run and well attended, and a bit of a no brainer as a business. We can’t wait for next year and the opportunities that next year will bring.

If you’re interested in getting the VIP treatment at a Shropshire Festivals’ event, just give us an idea of guest numbers and budget, and let us make it happen for you!
