Jubilee event grants - last call

Grants are up for grabs to help Middlesbrough communities celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The funding's available for local events over the bank holiday weekend from Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5.

There are two grant schemes for events which must be open to residents or communities:

  • Up to £1,000 for constituted groups for community-based activities
  • Up to £250 to community groups or neighbours for locally-based street parties

Councillor Stephen Hill, Middlesbrough Council's Executive member for Culture & Communities, said: "The pandemic's put normal life on hold for the best part of two years, but the return to normality is really gaining momentum.

"The Platinum Jubilee will bring communities for a real celebration, and these grants will help create events that showcase everything that's great about Middlesbrough.

"I'd urge as many people as possible to apply for the £250 grant in particular, so we can fill the town with street parties and celebrate this unique milestone in true Middlesbrough style."

Applications close at 9am on Monday, March 28. Any applications arriving after this date will not be considered. Anyone interested in applying for a Platinum Jubilee celebration event grant should email Sharon Barker at sharon_barker@middlesbrough.gov.uk or call 01642 729309.
