World class architecture is not created by architects working in isolation. Our built environment depends on enlightened enabling businesses from across the profession – from engineers to accountants, product manufacturers to recruitment agencies – each helping to facilitate the creation of quality architecture and the improvement of our built environment.

Through our Benefactors Programme we provide a way for these leading organisations to increase their visibility and engagement across the Architecture & Built Environment sector.

Throughout the year our Benefactors Programme creates opportunities for your organisation to demonstrate thought leadership and insight to the profession and wider public. Key LFA events like our Patrons’ Dinner will enable you to broaden your engagement with industry leaders.

When you become an LFA Benefactor, our team will work with you to fulfil your marketing, outreach and staff development objectives, We work closely with our Benefactors to find
ways for their staff to engage with the festival, for example through tickets to special events, including our opening party and press launch – helping your team network and meet new contacts across the profession.

We provide a programme of support to help your team develop their own ideas for festival events. There’s also a range of unique and fun LFA branded merchandise for your team.
