call for sponsors

Southampton Podcast Festival would not be possible without the generous help of our Sponsors.

Sponsorship donations will be used to pay for venue costs, allowing us to have several free-entry shows, and keeping prices down on our ticket-only shows. It also allows us to donate a larger portion of ticket sales to our selected charity. Additional sponsorship money will be used for marketing costs.

SPF is not-for-profit and so if sponsorship revenue exceeds our expenditure, all remaining money will be donated to our charity partner.

There are various levels of sponsorship packages available,starting from as little as £75. Please see the details of each package below. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for Southampton Podcast Festival, please get in touch.

why sponsor SPF?

While 2022 will be the first ever Southampton Podcast Festival, the team behind the event have been hosting podcast events in Southampton since 2017.

Our three "SuperPod" events had a combined total of over 6,000 people listen live via our dedicated audio stream, and over 7,500 have listened via our podcast feed. In 2020 we introduced live video streaming too, with over 4,000 views on our live video streams on social media over our last two events. Our third event was also broadcast on three local radio stations around the UK.

This year we are moving away from the live audio and video feeds, encouraging our audience to join us in person at our venues in Southampton. We will still release video and audio content after the event, and as a sponsor your name would feature prominantly on those releases,being seen and heard by thousands of people, on top of the hundreds who will make up our live audiences.

You will also be showing your support for the creative industry in Southampton, solidifying your status as a cornerstone of our great city, as well as being a key force in us raising money for Southampton Hospitals Charity.
