Community Festivals Fund reopens for applications

Thu, October 14, 2021

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has re-opened its Community Festivals Fund for applications until Tuesday 26th October 2021.

Organisations can now apply for support for festivals and events taking place from mid-December to 31st March,  as all the funding was not committed when it first opened back in August,

Organisations might like to apply for a Christmas or New Year festival or to celebrate Burns Night or St Patrick’s Day, or perhaps a seasonal spring festival.

If your group has already made a successful application to the Community Festivals Fund you cannot apply again and we are not able to accept applications for events that are receiving funding through the Christmas Festive Fund.

Applications should be made through Council’s online funding hub. Guidance notes can be found here

The closing date for completed applications is noon on Tuesday 26th October 2021.

All planned events and activities should adhere to current and any future changes in regulations, as set out in the Government’s Coronavirus guidance specific to events and mass gatherings at the time of event planning and at time of delivery.
