Our Sponsors

As in previous years we have been pledged sponsorship from some amazing local companies.  Without their sponsorship it would not be possible to stage our numerous events during the Festival Fortnight or produce our magazine and deliver it free to all Bathgate residential addresses (where possible).  We are very grateful and hope these sponsorships continue for years to come.
