Application deadlines

Our next meeting

The trust’s next deadline for general applications (performance and recording projects) is 5 September 2022. Applications will be considered for any event/project happening after 1 December 2022.

Annual deadlines

General applications are considered three times a year. Deadlines for receipt of applications are the beginning of January May and September. Each deadline is for projects scheduled to take place at least three months after the deadline: 

  • 4 January for events/projects taking place after 1 April.
  • 3 May for events/projects taking place after 1 August.
  • 5 September for events/projects taking place after 1 December.

Results are notified to applicants approximately two months after the deadline.

The trust does not make retrospective grants so please apply in good time. It is never too early to submit an application and we are happy to consider applications for any event well in advance of its planned date(s).
