Apply for the community festival grant scheme

Camden is delighted to announce we will be supporting community festivals again in 2020-21.
All community festivals and events that receive a grant will also receive a waiver of all non-statuary fees and charges which include road closures, trading licenses and parking suspensions. The process for grant applications will be managed directly by Camden Events Service.
