Why do we need sponsorship support?
Chislehurst Rocks is labour-intensive and expensive to put on. Just for starters we need to secure c. £15k for stage and marquee hire, sound systems, portaloos, generators, licences, safety barriers, rubbish disposal, first aid and marshals. Grants are available but winning them is never guaranteed and disappointingly this year we have been turned down for all the grants we have applied for. That is why we need YOUR help in order to make Chislehurst Rocks 2017 happen and to keep it a FREE event. You can read about our wonderful 2016 supporters at last year's Sponsors page and 100 Club page on the Friends of Chislehurst Recreation Ground website.
