2009 sees the 200th anniversary of Tennyson's birth. Tennyson lived the last 16 years of his life at Aldworth House, Haslemere. It is also the 150th anniversary of Conan Doyle's birth. Doyle lived at Undershaw, Haslemere. The overall budget is around £50,000 and we expect ticket sales to cover around £30,000 leaving a funding gap of £20,000. Sponsors may wish to be associated with one or more events or they may wish to sponsor the Festival as a whole.
