To apply, your festival must have been delivered at least once in the previous five years (this may include digital presentation). Please make sure you include evidence of previous delivery in your application.
A festival (for the purpose of this fund) involves an integrated programme of events and activities featuring one or more artforms, from any cultural tradition, that takes place within a defined area or region over a designated period of time.
CCS Festival Funds can support eligible festivals that are delivered within 12 months of the grant notification. As this is a one-off fund, festival grants will only be distributed in rounds between October 2023 and April 2024.
