Timeframes for applications
The Major Events Fund is open year round. Applications for the Major Events Fund need to be submitted at least two years in advance of the event commencement date to allow sufficient time to assess the event and develop leverage and legacy programmes to secure benefits off the event/event platform.
The Major Events Fund will no longer be accepting applications for events in 2020, and events that take place in 2021 are highly unlikely to receive investment. We are prioritising events that take place from 1 January 2023.
Timeframes differ depending on the level of funding, and whether the event aligns with our Statement of Investment Priority.
