Deadline Approaching for Eurovision 2023 and King’s Coronation Funding


15 March 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Limited-time funding for special events happening in the UK in 2023.

Groups have two weeks left to apply to the National Lottery Awards for All programme if they are seeking funding to celebrate the Coronation (5 to 8 May 2023) or Eurovision (9 to 13 May 2023) in England.

To be eligible for funding, projects must adhere to the Fund’s usual guidance and:

  • Involve people and communities from the start.
  • Build on people's strengths.
  • Be connected in their community.

Applications are accepted from voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations, schools, and statutory bodies such as local authorities and town councils.

The programme offers grants of £300 to £10,000 for up to one year.

Grants can be used to cover a variety of costs including equipment, staff costs, transport, running costs and volunteer expenses.

The deadline for Coronation or Eurovision funding is 24 March 2023 (midnight).


How To Apply

Applications may be submitted at any time.

Applications for funding for the King's Coronation or Eurovision 2023 must be submitted by the deadline of 24 March 2023 (midnight).

There is high demand for funding and the funding teams will assess applications in the order they are received. They aim to communicate their decisions with the applicants as soon as possible, which usually takes around 12 weeks.

The online application form can be found on the National Lottery Community Fund website.
