Last chance to apply to Council's Community Festivals Fund

Thu, January 25, 2018

The deadline for applications to Council’s Community Festivals Fund is fast approaching! 

Applications for festivals and events taking place between 1st April 2018 and 31st March 2019 should be submitted by the deadline of 12 noon on Friday 26th January 2018.

The Community Festival Fund was established in recognition of the positive contribution that festivals can make to communities and to the local economy. The Fund will enable organisations to celebrate their unique cultural and community identity, to promote diversity and to strengthen good community relations within and between communities.

60 local organisations received funding for local festivals last year and Council is looking forward to receiving applications for lots of exciting festivals and events this incoming year.

You may find it helpful to discuss your project with officers before submitting your application.  Please contact Community Development Section on 028 7034 7032. 

Applications should be submitted through Council’s Online Funding Hub at
