The Anson Charitable Trust
We offer our thanks to The Anson Charitable Trust (“ACT”) which was established in May 2005 as a vehicle to enable the Anson family to strategically support and fund not-for-profit and charitable organisations. The ACT is entirely funded by the Anson family.
The Rothschild Foundation is a charity supporting arts and heritage, the environment and social welfare by awarding grants, fostering dialogue and debate, and through our support of Waddesdon Manor.
Culture plays a vital role in improving our quality of life and wellbeing, has the ability to address social challenges and enhances the everyday.
We are committed to increasing opportunities for everyone to experience cultural activity. We recognise that in order to achieve this we need to contribute to building a local cultural sector that is inclusive, vibrant and resilient.
Discover Bucks Museum
In Aylesbury’s historic centre sits a heritage museum, art gallery and the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery. Recently renovated, we are delighted that Discover Bucks Museum has been offered as a venue for the 2022 Festival of Lights celebration and facilitating the Willow Lantern making workshop.
Aylesbury Town Council
Aylesbury Town Council includes the Town Mayor and Councillors covering thirteen wards. They have supported the Festival of Lights celebrations since we launched in 2017. We have invited Mayor of Aylesbury as a festival guest of honour.
William Harding’s Charity
We extend our thanks to The William Harding charity for supporting our community event. The charity was founded by William Harding, a yeoman farmer, who lived in Walton in 1772. This Charity was established to buy coats for poor men and women of Walton and to place children of the poor of Aylesbury and Walton as apprentices.
Local photography, videography and animation company Photo Hello provides businesses with visual marketing materials and professional headshots. We appreciate Andy Scott’s support as a festival partner.
