Applications are being invited for Argyll and Bute Council’s Strategic Events and Festivals Fund for 2019-20.

The fund has a £113,000 budget for the 2019-20 period and is open for online applications now, closing at noon on September 14.

Two grant pots will make up the fund, one of which will allow applicants to apply for a grant of £5000 or less. The other is for grants of more than £5000. Applicants can only seek funding from one of the pots per event.

Applications to the Strategic Events and Festivals Fund can be made online at where guidance is also available.

Later this year, the council’s Supporting Communities Fund will invite applications from smaller, community-focussed events.
