Help to keep it free!

Each year, GDIF offers the very best of UK and international outdoor arts.

However, keeping the Festival free is always a major fundraising challenge. As a small charity we are dependent on grants, donations and sponsorship. In these difficult economic times we believe that GDIF's high quality, free, outdoor arts events are more important than ever but to continue to deliver and develop the Festival we need your help.

A donation of
£10 will cover the expenses of one volunteer welcoming you to the Festival
£80 helps to provide a room for one night for an artist from abroad
£150 can help to provide more seating facilities at events
£300 would be the cost of having a show BSL interpreted or audio described


Your donations will be doubled!

GDIF is part of Arts Council England's Catalyst Programme, which matches income received by arts organisations from individual and corporate donations.

So, every donation made by you to GDIF will be automatically doubled! Giving £50 to the Festival will be matched by a further £50 from the Catalyst Award.

GDIF is very thankful for all donations helping the Festival to reach its fundraising target for this year and keeping it free.
