ADELANTA EVENTS - CHOIRS IN QUIET PLACES
The Choirs in Quiet Places choral workshop and concert is an annual event taking place in January in Southwell, Nottinghamshire. Choirs and individual singers are invited to attend, and come from Nottinghamshire, the East Midlands and Yorkshire, as well as further afield. The day begins with a choral workshop (sectionals and massed singers) in a local school, led by an internationally-known musical director, assisted by other professional singers and musicians. One or two major pieces are selected each year as the centrepiece for the workshop and concert. In the afternoon, the singers come together with an orchestra to rehearse for the evening's concert, which usually takes place in Southwell Minster. Choirs in Quiet Places has now run twice successfully, and the organisers, Adelanta Events, are looking for sponsorship partners to support the programme, and also to explore the possibility of extending the concept to an event specifically for Youth choirs and musicians. "Sponsorship packages start at £250; but rather than dictating packages and benefits, we would like to work with potential sponsors to design a tailor-made programme which will achieve the sponsor's aims".

BATTLE MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL
"The event of the weekend", The Guardian. The Battle Festival of arts and music, held in October, seeks to fund and present major classical concerts and a new music commission to be performed by children from twelve schools, at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, a workshop/performance to introduce young children to an orchestra. "We want to take music to people who can't attend concerts through infirmity, at local residential homes and hospices. We want to offer Master Classes on song writing and how to enter the music industry. We present jazz and contemporary music. We facilitate and encourage a visual arts strand, showcasing local and international artists. Most of all we want to encourage and develop talent and enhance people's wellbeing through awareness of, and participation in, music and the arts. The Festival Committee established Battle Festival in 2013. It received considerable critical acclaim and appealed to a wide age group. The committee is managed by a team of creative professionals and educators. Artistic Director Dan Cornford, principle Viola Player of the London Philharmonic, draws on the skills and experience of internationally-renowned performers to deliver our classical repertoire to a rural community. Musical education and outreach projects are managed by John Boyd, former Head of the Hastings Areas Music Service. The inaugural project delivered in 2014 drew together 300 children from six varied schools and, working with East Sussex Hub providers, delivered a programme of music to children in addition to the curriculum. Young musicians (popular music) were provided mentoring opportunities from an Ivor Novello Award winner, songwriting workshops, alongside a Q & A session with industry figures, including BBC Introducing, thus delivering invaluable advice, support and inspiration for musicians at an early stage, an experience not available at school or the rural community. Opera in a Day was presented by Glyndebourne Education Department. A diverse range of Battle Fringe activities was programmed to supplement and enhance the core programme. For the future, we will produce a world class music and arts festival that enthuses the local community, boosts the local economy and encourages visitors to the region. We want to make Battle an essential cultural destination for the arts, inspiring new audiences and bringing world-class performers and artists to Battle. We will expand on our 2014 visual arts element, producing a programme for local, regional and international artists, including gallery exhibitions, free talks, workshops, demonstrations and masterclass mentoring sessions. We are partners with Battle Town Council and the Pure Arts Group and are constructing an Arts and Heritage Trail and a competition for a sculpture to be placed on a roundabout. This will foster 'Health and Wellbeing' with participants and audience. In 2016 we will further develop all our art and music streams as part of the celebration of the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings". Contact: Steve Scott.

Approximately twenty selected MiAL artists will exhibit their work, which we invite the public to view and purchase should they wish. As a not-for-profit, all profit goes straight to our student artists, ensuring they are valued for their time and talent.

INSPIRE EDUCATION: UK SCHOOLS MEMORY CHAMPIONSHIPS
Inspire Education has been working with schools across the UK providing exciting and revolutionary services to all sectors of education. The organisation is passionate about raising the attainment and aspirations of students regardless of ability, to maximise their potential for learning and to achieve success in life. They have set up the UK Schools Memory Championships in order to achieve these goals. Inspire Education's highly trained presenters visit schools to deliver memory training to groups of students. These students are given a pre-printed training manual, which has been written by the eight times World Memory Champion Dominic O'Brien. Participating schools receive a Brain Club resource pack, which aids the students in setting up a club to promote memory development and brain training in general. After a period of training, in-school competitions take place across the UK. These competitions assess each student's ability to memorise five types of information in a test of raw memory power. The top students in the country are invited to a national final which is held in the region of the previous year's winner. The competition is a great way both of embedding memory techniques into education and developing life-long learning skills which are transferable across the curriculum and throughout life. Inspire Education constantly receives excellent feedback from schools, stating that these skills have had a positive affect on examination preparation and attainment levels. Recent research has shown that training the memory leads to a direct increase in problem solving ability, otherwise known as fluid intelligence. Participating students become proficient at putting these skills into practice to memorise and recall random words, random numbers and even the order of a shuffled deck of playing cards. As well as the realisation that they have acquired a powerful set of skills, this gives them the motivation and self confidence to memorise anything. These techniques are then effortlessly applied to their studies. The winners of last year's competition appeared on the BBC Breakfast News and the competition was featured in The Times and the Daily Telegraph. The size of the competition has increased dramatically this year and with it, the media interest is even greater. "As a sponsor you will be supporting the involvement of many schools that have limited funds to get involved in the training and competition; the growth of the competition throughout the UK and the provision of cutting edge resources for schools and students. Ultimately you will be helping to raise the attainment and aspirations of thousands of students across the UK. We regularly send promotional material to schools, educational departments and to government bodies. The competition has featured in several broadsheets and on the BBC News. You will be featured on all of our promotional material and on all of our press releases and television spots. Working with us will undoubtedly inspire you". Contact: Neil Denley, Director.

NATIONAL CHILDREN'S DAY UK
The UN General Assembly established Children's Day all the way back in 1954 as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children. While it is now recognised on various days in many places around the world, the UK never established a Children's Day. Finally, in March 2013, National Children's Day UK (NCDUK) was launched by the Save Childhood Movement and, since then, has received steadily growing support from thousands of parents, grandparents, children and teachers. "Our partners and supporters include the 1,500 member organisations of the Wild Network, the National Trust, the Eden Project, Community Playthings, Siren Films and Eureka National Children's Museum. A recent theme was The Science and Magic of Play. We are looking for long- and short-term sponsors, as well as competition prize donors, who share our passion for children's wellbeing and would like to be involved in helping us grow NCDUK as a major national event. We are looking for exciting competition prizes for all three competitions (see details of sponsorship opportunities below). Play equipment and playground fixtures, books, outdoor gear, science equipment, even kids' snacks and drinks and certainly one of your products, would make an excellent prize. As a donor you would have the fantastic opportunity to display your logo on our website and all competition materials, as well as being able to have our help in promoting your products and events online. Please get in touch if you'd like to donate one of your products towards our competitions in return for exciting advertising opportunities on our website and social networking sites".

Sponsorship opportunities

    Long-term sponsorship
This gives you the opportunity for free promotion on all marketing materials and NCDUK's social networking sites. This is an excellent chance to have your company name featured in a young and vibrant national campaign that reaches out to all families and professionals involved with children across the UK. You will be playing a key role in establishing a day initiated by the UN, and this proud fact can help endorse your products amongst a broad audience.

    Short-term sponsorship
This would be an exciting option for companies who have a particular interest in this year's theme and its importance in the fostering of curiosity, self-confidence and creativity in children. Your company's contribution would also be fully acknowledged on all our marketing materials and our social networking sites thus giving you exposure to our ever-growing audience.

    Competition prize donorship
We are also looking for competition prizes for our three major competitions. Previous competitions have been a great success, and we enthusiastically promoted our donors' logos, websites and products via our social networking sites. Going forward, our competitions will again invite members of the public to respond to our annual theme in one of our three categories: short video, image and quote or children's poster.

EE/0005 THE KATE KENNEDY CLUB
The Kate Kennedy Club exists to preserve the Kate Kennedy Annual Procession and has three aims: 1. Maintaining the traditions of the University and town of St. Andrews; 2. Upholding and improving Town and Gown relations; and 3. Raising money for local charities. The Kate Kennedy Procession is the Club's main event and the one around which the Club was founded. Each year both Town and Gown assemble to form a crowd of some 15,000 people on the streets of St. Andrews to celebrate the lives and contributions of some of the great men and women of the town and university. The procession has a long history but its organisation by the Kate Kennedy Club has ensured that it is a great tradition in the life of the town, a special day for town and gown alike. The Kate Kennedy Club Charity May Ball is the biggest ball in Scotland and is the main social event of the University calendar. The ball claims to offer exceptionally good value compared to many balls both within and outside St. Andrews, through sponsorship and careful spending. The ball is held in luxury marquees in the beautiful surroundings of Craigtoun Park, more than 2,000 undergraduates enjoying free drinks, food, fairground attractions and live bands. Those who want a little more can enjoy the unique Gold and Platinum experiences which boast helicopter rides over St Andrews, limousines to the park and an exclusive champagne reception. The Charity Opening Ball is the first social event of the academic year, and aims to bring the members of the University together. Hosted on Lower College Lawn in luxury marquees, guests are received with a champagne reception and piper, making this a splendid way to begin a university career. The Kate Kennedy Club Jazz Night, held in November, is one of the Club's most popular events, entertaining over 250 people with bands playing jazz and blues in a sophisticated ballroom setting. Some of the top professional jazz bands play to a packed dance floor. Contact: Julian Kaye, Head of Sponsorship. Address: Porters Lodge Mailing Room, College Gate, St. Andrews, Fife KY16 9AJ.
