Slingshot to manage all commercial partnerships for UK’s largest winter cultural celebration

Slingshot, the award-winning sponsorship agency today announces that it has been appointed by London’s Southbank Centre, the world-famous arts hub to manage its commercial rights for Wintertime – the UK’s largest celebration of winter culture.

Slingshot Sponsorship will handle all commercial rights and partner opportunities ahead of the 2018-2019 event.

Wintertime will once again become the winter destination for Londoners and tourists alike, providing a magnificent blend of inspiring artistic content and family entertainment for the holiday season.

Over the event which spans 3 months from November 2018 to January 2019, the Southbank Centre’s Queens Walk will be transformed into a twinkling winter extravaganza filled with Christmas surprises, attractions and activities for everyone to enjoy. The celebration integrates an unrivalled and truly diverse arts and culture programme, festive food and winter markets, as well as headline shows, the fantastical fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin and the daredevil spectacular Circus 1903 – making it the place to be for both consumers and brands this winter.

“We are thrilled to offer our ever-popular Wintertime once again as a seasonal celebration by the side of the Thames and we are looking for a dynamic partner to help us deliver an experience that is fun and inspiring.” said Alix Wooding, Director of Development at Southbank Centre. “Slingshot has an excellent reputation matching partners together and we look forward to working with them to find the perfect team to take with us on this journey.”

Slingshot Sponsorship enhances its clients’ commercial rights by uncovering new value through development of sponsorship assets thus providing a sustainable platform for brands to benefit from at all levels.

“Southbank Centre as a location is one of the most well recognised and iconic around the world and we are looking forward to working on the Wintertime event to showcase its undeniable potential to deliver world class partnerships with brands,” said Sam Howell, Sponsorship Director of Slingshot Sponsorship.

Commercial opportunities are now available for the 2018-2019 Wintertime event.
