Sponsorships

Hawksmoor sponsors a wide variety of events – at an overall company level, and through individual offices.

We sponsor local arts, music, culture and sport as a way to support the communities in which we operate.

Toby’s Garden Festivals

Toby’s Garden Festivals

Toby Buckland’s Garden Festivals are now in their 6th year, and Hawksmoor is delighted to sponsor the “VIP Experience” for their 2019 event at Powderham Castle in Devon.

Toby is well-known to gardeners across the country as a presenter of BBC Gardeners’ World and as a regular on Gardeners’ Question Time. The Garden Festivals started in 2014 when Toby and his wife Lisa decided to create a gardening event which champions smaller, specialist nurseries, to give them a chance to reach a wider audience and allow gardeners to get the best advice. Their ethos is to “work with local nurseries, artisans and craftspeople, to promote local, quality and home-grown.”

Visitors to the Garden Festivals can see over 150 exhibitors, with quality plants from award-winning nurseries, West Country crafts, artisan food and drink along with live music and family entertainment.

TedXExeter

TedXExeter

TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The conferences have been going for over 30 years, and invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Videos of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.

TedxExeter is Exeter’s local ideas festival with global reach – now in its 8th year. It is an independently organized TED event and in 2019 it promises, as always, a “day of inspiring talks, connection and action.”

Hawksmoor is sponsoring this year's event once again because the emphasis that TedxExeter places on inspiring communities to help tackle difficult problems with innovation, enterprise and optimism aligns very closely with our own mindset. At Hawksmoor we feel strongly about making a difference in the communities in which we operate, and we offer innovative solutions for ethically-minded investors who wish to make changes to the world through their investment choices.

EAT Food and Drink Festivals are a series of one-day festivals that celebrate local producers and products from within a 25 mile radius of each town. The festivals are free to attend and are run as a social enterprise, where all profits are ploughed into other local food and drink projects.

Hawksmoor’s Taunton office is delighted to sponsor the cookery schools at the Weston super Mare, Taunton, Burnham-on-Sea and Wellington Festivals in 2018. The Hawksmoor Cookery School will provide a free hands on workshop for adults and families with children aged 8+. The sessions are led by vegetarian cook Chrissie Godfrey and this year she will be showing participants how to make vegetable sushi and ‘socca’ pancakes – a pizza-like flatbread made with chickpea flour.

Cerne Abbas Music Festival

Cerne Abbas Music Festival

The Dorchester office of Hawksmoor Investment Management is a proud supporter of the Cerne Abbas Music Festival.

The Festival was founded in 1990 by Richard Hosford, leader of the Gaudier Ensemble and resident of Dorset. He was looking for a location that gave the musicians an attractive venue in which to perform, and where they could all be together for a week to play the music they wanted to play, at the highest artistic standards. He wanted to develop strong links with the community, provide accessible music to the people of Dorset and create a stimulating environment for local young musicians and children.

Cerne Abbas was his chosen location, partly because of the excellent acoustics of St Mary's Church but also because of the village and its community.

Dartmoor Artisan Trail

The Dartmoor Artisan Trail is an art, craft and food trail that gives visitors a glimpse behind the workshop walls of Dartmoor’s finest artists, makers and producers.

More than 20 artisans are featured on the trail, many of whom are still practising age-old Dartmoor trades. They include a blacksmith, wood-turner, shoe-maker, weaver, potter, cheese producer and whisky distiller. Visitors can watch the artisans at work, try out their skills for themselves and even try making their own products.

Trail founder, Suzy Bennett, said: “By backing this project, Hawksmoor is supporting Dartmoor’s unique artisan culture and helping to ensure that the moor’s traditional skills and trades survive.”
