2016 Donors: a HUGE thank you to Karin Graves, Peter Fleming, Anna Screen, Alison Chapman, Rupert Crofts and Kathrina Glitre for their generous donations supporting the 2016 Festival.

The Cary Grant Festival is a labour of love and currently does not receive any ongoing sponsorship. Your donation will help make the festival sustainable so we can keep on celebrating Cary Grant’s Bristol roots for years to come. We’ve got ambitious plans to take the festival to New York to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Archie Leach emigrating to America, making his way on Broadway and reinventing himself as Hollywood icon Cary Grant. Any donation, however large or small, would be much appreciated. Alternatively, you might like to support us by buying some of our Official Festival Merchandise, available over in our shop.
