Headline Sponsors

We are extremely grateful to all of our festival sponsors, partners and supporters, listed here.

Clive & Coffyne Pub

Leek United Building Society

Heritage Spice Trail Sponsor 

Leek United Building Society are proud to be headline sponsors of the Leek United Heritage Spice Trail which is taking place on both Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September at this year’s Ginger and Spice Festival 2019.

Leek United Chief Executive, Andrew Healy said: “We’re delighted to once again be a main sponsor of Market Drayton Ginger & Spice Festival, and we hope that visitors will enjoy exploring the town on the Leek United Heritage Spice Trail. It’s entirely fitting that our own mascot Humphrey is the ‘tour guide’ for the Trail, since camels played such a big part in helping to transport spices on the ancient overland trading routes. But more than that, the Festival is a wonderful way of giving people a real taste of everything good that the Market Drayton is famous for – and we’re simply happy to be a part of that!”


Music Concert Sponsor

Savills are headline sponsors for the Savills Music Concert at St Mary’s Church, Market Drayton which is taking place on Saturday 28th September 2019 in aid of Market Drayton Foodbank.

Mr Simon Farrant (Director and Head of Office Operations) at Savills Birmingham said, ”We are delighted to be supporting the Ginger and Spice Festival for the first time by partnering with this live music fundraising event at St Mary’s Church Market Drayton. Community events are an extremely important way for rural towns to raise their profile and encourage positive economic outcomes. Savills are committed to supporting the rural sector and being involved in this community fringe festival is testament to that.’’
