Be a Sponsor at Derby Mini Maker Faire

This year will see the 6th Derby Mini Maker Faire and is once again fitting that Derby Silk Mill are the organisers and hosts – given Derby’s 300 year heritage of creativity, engineering and; starting with this very building, the site of the world’s first factory!

Last year’s event attracted over 2500 visitors. They came from a whole spectrum of ages, and most were in family groups. Around 190 makers exhibited at the event with some of them being local and others who travelled from around the UK.

Becoming a sponsor of Derby Mini Maker Faire is a great way for your business to support this development and become involved in this exciting event.

For more information on how you can support Derby Mini Maker Faire, please contact Jennifer Cuadrado. 

Every pound you donate online will be doubled by the Heritage Lottery Fund to go towards Derby Museums’ Endowment Fund. Your valuable donation will help to ensure Derby’s important heritage can continue to be enjoyed by everyone now, and for future generations to come.
