Thousands of pounds are available to help fund events across Cumbria, thanks to a grants scheme from the Lakes Hospitality Association.
The Association’s trade-only show is unique as profits raised every year are redirected into projects and events that directly benefit local economies. Long after the conclusion of the show the money raised will continue to help grow and evolve the £3bn tourism industry on which Cumbria is so reliant.
Previous funding beneficiaries include Bowness Bay Blues Festival, Kendal Torchlight Carnival, Windermere and Hawkshead Christmas Markets and the Barrow Super Soapbox Challenge.
Successful applicants will be provided with funds to assist their event’s public relations, sales & marketing strategies, provided by the team at Cumbria Tourism.
Closing date for applications – 31st January 2020
Funding is available for events that will run between 1st September 2020 and 31st August 2021
