Are you running an ‘innovative’ event? Help may be at hand

By Contributed Item in Charity

Up to £3,000 of funding could be available for organisers looking to deliver new and innovative events in the Vale.

In order to qualify for funding, organisers will need to demonstrate to a council panel that their event will meet certain criteria – such as showing the potential to attract visitors from outside of the area.

The council has previously supported a number of successful events, and the local authority is now keen to broaden the offer for 2017-18 by lending a helping hand to new independent events in order to help them grow.

Organisers who wish to apply for funding for events taking place before the end of March 2018 should contact the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s events team by emailing, or visiting

All event grant applications will be reviewed on a regular basis by the panel, until all of the monies have been allocated to the successful applicants.
