Belfast City Centre event grant scheme

23 Jan 2020

The Department for Communities (DfC) is committed to supporting the provision of art and cultural activities and events in Belfast City Centre.

In particular, DfC aims to support those events that encourage local involvement and community participation which will help to develop the city as a destination. Event organisers through their events should aim to contribute to the attraction of visitors to the Belfast City Centre area and encourage people to visit and enjoy what the city of Belfast has to offer.

This £200,000 funding package is aimed at encouraging arts, cultural and community based events and activities in Belfast City Centre taking place between April 2020 and March 2021.

There are a number of event spaces available for use in the Belfast City Centre area including Custom House Square, Cotton Court, Donegall Quay and Writers Square.

The closing date for applications is 27 February 2020.
