Events and Festivals Fund seeks applications
Applications are being invited for Argyll and Bute Council’s Strategic Events and Festivals Fund for 2019-20.
The fund has a £113,000 budget for 2019-20 and is open for online applications for six weeks.
The closing date is noon on Friday September 14.
Two grant pots will make up the fund, one of which will allow applicants to apply for a grant of £5,000 or less.
The other is for grants of more than £5,000. Applicants can only seek funding from one of the pots per event.
Applications to the Strategic Events and Festivals Fund can be made online at https:// www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/events-and-festivals-grants (shortened link https://bit.ly/2vyvP8Q).
Argyll and Bute Council aims to ensure the maximum economic benefit is secured from the limited funding available. The focus will therefore be on strategic events and festivals that are primarily aiming to attract visitors from outside the area and increasing the appeal of the area as a world class tourist destination.
Later this year, the council’s Supporting Communities Fund will invite applications from smaller, community-focused events.
