Two new funding opportunities have been announced for bands in England.
The Queen's Platinum Jubilee provides two Arts Council England funds to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the first British monarch to attain 70 years as monarch.
Brass Bands England has highlighted the opportunity for bands to apply to help deliver their own events as part of the four-day celebration later in the year.
This will enable brass bands to work with other art-forms and artists to deliver a cultural event, raise their profile and reach and engage new participants and audiences.
Applications are now open until 22nd February. These must be made through a regional/local community which can be found via:
Awards for all
The National Lottery 'Awards for All' England Fund is open until 31st March, accepting applications from voluntary and community organisations in England that will deliver events and activities that celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
Bands can also apply for funding for a one-off event during the weekend which meets the criteria.
Details on each fund can be found on the: https://www.bbe.org.uk/news17122021-1558/fundraising-2022-%E2%80%93-welcome-and-opportunities
