Headline Sponsor - Tarmac

Park owners, Tarmac, are the headline sponsor of Festival of Wildlife. Tarmac have owned the park since the 1980s and now that extraction on site has come to an end, Tarmac are working with the Trust and other stakeholders to open the park as a country park and nature reserve. 2019 will be Tarmac's 4th year as headline sponsor of the Festival of Wildlife. 

Associate Sponsor - Maydencroft

Groundwork contractors Maydencroft have worked with the Trust numerous times over the years on nature reserve projects. In February 2019, Maydencroft were appointed by Tarmac to help with the day-to-day running of Panshanger Park.
