Destination Events fund for Berwick

The Welcome Visitor Project is launching a fund to develop the local events and festivals programme in order to attract more visitors and to ensure Berwick upon Tweed is a vibrant and exciting visitor destination.

The Destination Events Fund will provide financial support for activities which add new dimensions to the current Festivals & Events programme or deliver new events which help to promote and celebrate Berwick’s distinctiveness.

The Welcome Visitor Steering Group has allocated £30,000 in an initial round for forthcoming events which will take place during the current financial year 2019/20.

In order to support a wide and diverse programme of activities we anticipate the average grant will be around £5,000. This is a guide figure only as both larger and smaller scale events will be considered and will be assessed against the funding criteria.

The deadline for completed applications, for forthcoming events until the end of March 2020, is 5.00pm, 31st May 2019.
