The Bay of Colwyn Town Council is inviting applications from local organisations requiring funding to provide an event, festival or cultural activity which has the potential to encourage community cohesion and attract visitors to the Bay of Colwyn area (Colwyn Bay, Old Colwyn and Rhos on Sea).

The proposed event(s) must take place in the Bay of Colwyn Area between May 2020 and April 2021, be open to the general public and have the potential to attract significant visitor numbers. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a successful track record in delivering events, or be willing and able to work with another organisation which can do so.

A funding ‘pot’ will be set aside by the Town Council, which it is hoped will fund a number of events. The maximum funding available for any individual event is £5,000 and applicants for larger events are therefore encouraged to seek additional funding from other sources. Please note that any funding approved will not be available until April 2020.

For further information and/or an application form, please contact the Town Clerk at: Town Hall, Rhiw Road, Colwyn Bay LL29 7TE, or by e-mail: clerk@colwyn-tc.gov.uk

You can also visit our Grants page to download the application forms:  https://www.colwyn-tc.gov.uk/town-council/grants-available-and-local-trusts/

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is noon on 2nd January 2020. All applications will be acknowledged and applicants may be contacted to present their proposals in person to a Committee of the Council at a later date.

The Town Mayor, Cllr Neil Bastow, says “Events continue to play a key role in attracting both local residents and visitors to our town, making it a vibrant place to live/visit. The Town Council continues to support those willing and able to organise events, in the hope that we can have a year-round calendar of activities to appeal to all ages.”
