Media Sponsor Announced

Our Media Sponsor for 2024 is The Stray Ferret – the independent online news service for the Harrogate district. We are so pleased to have them on board. The Stray Ferret provides a platform for people in the district to ask questions, share their views and voice opinions on issues of public importance. They have had a journalist based in Ripon since their very beginning, 4 years ago this March.

The Stray Ferret believes that the festival is beneficial to Ripon, saying: “It really places the arts and culture in a very dynamic city, bringing people in locally and from further afield.” Recent audience research helped confirm their interest in supporting the festival, finding readers remarkably interested in arts, culture and events. “We feel the festival is the perfect fit, something our readers across the district will love. Not only that, but it is also a privilege to partner with such a fantastic, growing event in our area.”

The Stray Ferret aims to cover as many festival events as possible, interviewing participants, offering reviews, sharing special offers and running a family ticket competition. This sponsorship is part of a continuing commitment to the Ripon community, having previously sponsored the St Wilfrid Stars Event, managed by Ripon Together. The Stray Ferret said the service was delighted to partner the festival and concluded: “It would be great to have a partnership that grows year after year.”
