Community Festival Funding is now Open for 2023 – 2024
We are hosting an online workshop to assist all event organisers in their planning for smaller street parties to larger community events, on what is expected from the application ; health and safety thinking ; new creative ideas for your event ; diversity and inclusion thinking and much more.
We hope you will join us on February 8th from 5.30pm
Please email [email protected] if you wish to attend!
Camden Council are delighted to announce that we are opening funding applications for Community Festivals and Events.
The closing date is 28th February 2023.
We are also pleased to be able to confirm that all community festivals and events that receive a grant will also receive a waiver of all non-statutory fees and charges such as road closures, trading licenses, waste collections and parking suspensions relating to an event. However, in the current climate of cuts to council funding, we cannot afford to cover all costs and a conversation with Camden Events Service during your application can determine what might need to be paid for.
We particularly welcome applications which celebrate the Kings Coronation in May, 75th anniversary of Windrush and the 75 Anniversary of the NHS in June, Pride in June, South Asian Heritage Month in July to August, Diwali in October and Black History Season between October - December
Applications are welcome for grants of £200 to £2,000
