Kate Livingston, Director of Art in the Park, expressed her excitement, stating, “We are absolutely delighted to have Severn Trent on board as our headline sponsor. Their support has been instrumental in ensuring that this year’s festival can go ahead, and it means so much to the local community. The partnership with Severn Trent not only highlights their commitment to improving our local environment but also enriches our festival with valuable educational activities that everyone can enjoy.”

Kat Reay, Environment Stakeholder Manager at Severn Trent, shared the company’s enthusiasm: “We’re proud and feel honoured to have the opportunity to support such a wonderful, community-focused event that will bring together people in such a wonderfully creative way. We’re now locals to Leamington, as we’ve been working here over the last few years on our project that’s set to move stretches of the River Leam and Avon towards bathing quality. The project will see us playing our part in improving water quality in local rivers, and we know just how important that is to those living here, who like to explore the local parks and environment. We’ve been massively welcomed by the local community and look forward to seeing everyone at the event".
