What you need to know
Given the unprecedented nature and impact of COVID-19 on events and event organisers, we have decided to suspend funding applications for Round 45. We are currently reviewing the National Events Programme and will be making changes to the criteria and application process to ensure future funding is focused on supporting and re-establishing Scotland’s events industry as soon as the current event gathering restrictions are lifted. Details of the revised funding available and application process will be published here in due course and shared through our e-newsletter and on our Twitter and LinkedIn channels. In the meantime, if you have any queries or questions about your event or other funding opportunities, please contact one of our Event Managers or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
