Summer Community Diversionary Festival programme

Applications are now closed for our Summer Community Diversionary Festival funding programme.

This programme will provide funding support for festival activity that is developed and led by a community organisation or a community-led partnership or consortium. 


The objectives of the programme are to:

  • provide resources for communities to engage on issues relating to positive cultural expression in the lead up to and around 12 July and 8 August through the provision of summer community festival activity.
  • support and fund summer community festival activity that will divert young people who are at risk of becoming involved in anti-social behaviour during the summer months,
  • allow communities to deliver summer community festival activities at specific locations where there have previously been negative issues associated with bonfires.

How to apply

Funding of between £25,000 and up to £100,000 is available for groups who meet the criteria outlined.

The closing date for applications was 12 noon on Tuesday 19 March 2019.
