A Letter of Request from our Festival Director

Updated: Oct 5


Ballarat Cabaret Festival is back!

& we need the help of local companies like yours.


Hello,

After what has been a few tumultuous years for everyone, Ballarat Cabaret Festival is back!

Under new Management and led by Artistic Director: International Cabaret Superstar and Ballarat Arts Academy Alumni Issie Hart.

Ballarat Cabaret Festival will be delivered by Not-for-Profit Association ‘Cabaret with a Cause’.

Over the weekend of November 18-19, 2022, we will be hosting a number of events at the Mechanics Institute on Sturt St, Ballarat. Event program here: https://www.ballaratcabaretfestival.com

Our events include mainstage shows; events supporting and mentoring young, local talent; events engaging the LGBTQIA+ community; Pay It Forward tickets to allow access to our festival for local individuals on a low income and other community engagement activities. Over the course of the weekend, we plan to entertain 1000+ locals and Ballarat visitors and our social media campaign will reach far and wide!

We need the help of local companies like yours.

That’s why I’m writing to you. Would you consider making a donation to sponsor the festival? As we are a new and independent arts organisation with little funding, we rely on the help of external sponsors to help bring this festival to life!

In appreciation of your anticipated donation, we invite you to come on board as an official sponsor in exchange for your company logo on our website and across our marketing materials and social media.

With you by our side at this upcoming event, we’re sure to achieve this season’s fundraising goal and serve Cabaret with a Cause well in bringing back Ballarat’s beloved Cabaret Festival.

Our sponsorship coordinator Dee will follow up with you by phone within a week to see if you are interested in being an official event sponsor but do feel free to reach out to us in the meantime if you would like to proceed.

We can’t wait to hear back!


With warm regards,



Festival Director

Issie Hart
