Our Partners and Sponsors are innovators, pioneers and thinkers. They are embracing the changes in the digital world and are concerned with social impact and place. With their support, we aim to make Frequency into one of the world’s leading digital festivals, and Lincoln into a digital focal point in the UK.
Thank you to all of our Frequency 2021 Partners, Supporters and Friends.
Lincoln BIG (Lincoln Business Improvement Group) has been in existence since 2003, but became a formal Business Improvement District (BID) in 2005.
The Lincoln BIG pro-actively supports more than 800 levy payers across the BID district. It plays a key role in ensuring the city centre is clean, bright and welcoming and stages its own vibrant events and supports others led by partners’ organisations. These bring thousands of extra visitors into the city.
Our core services for businesses include the support of our team of wardens, our Lincoln in Bloom initiative, Security Group, the management of bus and car parking deals, Christmas activities and the operation of the Lincoln Visitor Centre.
Everything we do is designed to help our levy paying businesses to succeed and grow, as the city continues to develop.
Sarah Loftus, Lincoln BIG Chief Executive said:
“We are thrilled to be welcoming the return of the Frequency International Festival of Digital Culture to the city.
“Frequency never fails to deliver an exciting digitally-based programme of attractions that are accessible for people of all ages.
“It really boosts city footfall and leaves a long-lasting legacy, opening people’s minds to the versatility of digital technologies and giving them something different to talk about for weeks after the event.”
City of Lincoln Council
City of Lincoln Council is a high-performing and innovative organisation, focused on providing quality services and delivering outcomes that matter.
Our focus is on driving economic growth; delivering quality housing; reducing inequality and enhancing our remarkable place.
These priorities are integral in helping ensure Lincoln remains a fantastic place to live, work, study and visit. They are also the drivers behind encouraging a creative and innovative mind-set that ensures Lincoln is an exciting place to be.
In recent years, our vibrant cathedral city has embraced change while respecting its rich heritage. We have attracted significant investment, which has had a positive effect on the greater Lincolnshire economy and helped drive the city and county forward.
By working in partnership with communities, stakeholders and businesses we are helping build the foundation for Lincoln’s ambitious future and ensuring we make a positive difference to the city and its residents in everything we do.
We are very proud to be Lincoln.
Simon Walters, Director for Communities and Environment at City of Lincoln Council said:
“As Lincoln gets back to normal after the pandemic we are looking forward to Frequency Festival injecting its trademark vibrancy and dynamism into the heart of this historic city. We are working closely with Threshold Studios and our other partners to ensure the safety of residents and visitors as we welcome all to this exciting event during the autumn half-term.”
University of Lincoln
Professor Mary Stuart CBE, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said:
“As one of the founding partners, I am very proud to be supporting Frequency Festival’s return in this, its 10th year. From the very beginning, we set out to connect with the city, with audiences and with each other, as cultural partners. This year’s theme of Connection couldn’t be more fitting.”
The official destination management organisation for Lincoln and the surrounding area, Visit Lincoln is a partnership of private, public and third sector organisations. It’s our aim to raise awareness of Lincoln as a great place to visit, study, meet and invest.
Charlotte Goy, Chief Executive, Visit Lincoln, said:
“It’s going to be incredible because we have a world-class city working with a world-class team delivering Frequency Festival 2021. This festival will attract people from all over the country thanks to the line-up of artists we have coming to Lincoln, and it will be a welcome boost to the local economy. It’s a chance for residents, communities, businesses and city partners to work together and reset the cultural and arts programme that Lincoln will host in the future.”
