By supporting, as a Friend at any level you’ll help make an event which runs
almost entirely on voluntary energy – happen. Hinterland was born out of our
aim to create a Festival entirely of our own. Having graduated from a happy
four years’ partnership with the Hay Festival, we forged our way independently
in the world and are very excited about our 2019 programme of events.
As a Friend you’ll be helping fund the Festival itself – from venue hire, to printing,
to bunting, transport and tech, we need funds to make it happen. Our
budget is raised through grant aid, sponsorship - and donations.
Our Friends also support by sharing ideas, feedback, and input into the Festival
itself. By learning we’ll grow, improve and create a permanent presence for the
Kells Hinterland Festival in Ireland’s cultural calendar.
As well as the warm good feelings that come from joining a community of
Festival friends, membership comes with benefits. Here are the details on
what you can expect as a Hinterland Friend.
