** FUNDING APPEAL - RUNNING TOTAL UPDATE (as of 23rd April 2017) - £13,840.80**
£6808 raised on Crowdfunder and £7032.80 raised from individuals donating via Nairn Community Centre and The Nairn Bookshop - please continue to help us reach our £15,000 target by 1st May.
We’ve launched an urgent public fundraising campaign to raise £15,000 after losing a major funder.
We have just four weeks to raise the money or we’ll be forced to cancel this year’s event, with future festivals under threat.
If you’ve been to the Festival before and enjoyed its range of readings by top authors, poetry, world-class music, drama, art exhibitions, talks on history and heritage, storytelling, creative workshops, film, and fun free kids events, please donate here to help save it.
For this year’s Festival, we already have almost 100 events planned over six days, and it promises to be one of the best ever, but not without your help.
Please donate – the smallest donation can make a difference! http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/nairn-book-and-arts-festival
We’re giving some special rewards to our top funders – Golden tickets allowing FREE entry to all Festival events* for all donations of £500+!
All donors giving £25 + will be entered into a prize draw to win a Golden Ticket**.
The Festival, now in its 14th year, is one of the most important events in the Nairn area. It boosts the local economy, brings visitors to the area, supports local businesses, offers opportunities to local arts groups and writers, performers, musicians and artists of all ages
