Applications for the community festival grant scheme

Community Festival grant applications are now closed for 2023 -24 

We are pleased 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 welcomed applications which celebrate the Kings Coronation, 75th anniversary of Windrush and the 75 year Anniversary of the NHS, Pride, South Asian Heritage Month and Black History Season.
