Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival is supported by the PPL PRS Charity.

Music amplifies everything it touches. It can turn a field into a festival, a bar into a dancefloor and a job into a passion. So it’s important that we stand up for music by protecting those that make it. This event has been supported by the PPL PRS charity and community discount scheme. PPL PRS licenses the use of copyright music across the UK, giving businesses and organisations the permission they need to play the music they want. TheMusicLicence ensures that music creators are fairly rewarded with royalties so they can keep making music - and mean that we’re able to support music at events like this. For more information about PPL PRS, visit pplprs.co.uk or call 0800 0720 808.
