News release


Apply for up to £2,000 in funding for your event

Wednesday 12 October 2016

Up to £2,000 is available for festivals or community events in the local area from Allerdale Borough Council’s Festival and Events Fund.

The grants are accessible to support new or developing events taking place in Allerdale between January and May 2017 that improve the cultural or leisure offer for surrounding communities, as well as bigger events that fill a gap in the leisure and culture calendar across the area, which attract audiences and participants both locally and from further afield.

Events that have previously been supported by grants from the fund include; Aspatria Music Festival, Castlerock, the ‘Lake District by Night’ photography event, Maryport Flood Fun Day, Wigton Spring Fling plus many more.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Allerdale Borough Council’s Executive member with responsibility for economic development, said, “Allerdale Borough Council is committed to supporting the development of festivals and community-based events. We have seen some fantastic events that have benefited from the grants so far, all of which have contributed towards the Council’s priorities of improving health and wellbeing and enhancing our towns to make them appealing for both tourists and local people. This funding offers a fantastic boost for smaller scale events, allowing them to sit in line with larger events in Allerdale such as the Northbound street party, Taste Cumbria food festival and the Lakesman triathlon.”

All funding has to be applied for by completing an application form which is available from Allerdale Borough Council’s website at and follow the links to ‘funding your festival or event’, or a hard copy can be collected from Allerdale House. For further information, contact 0303 123 1702.
