Support with event promotion

Are you passionate about music, dance, theatre and the Arts?

If you are an arts professional, community group, local individual or arts organisation within the district, we may be able to help with promoting your events.

Please send details of your event to our communications team and we will add the event details to our website events listings and social media accounts.

Special projects and events

We have a small grants fund that not-for-profit organisations, voluntary groups and charities can apply to, to support the development of arts and culture within the district. To qualify you need to be a constituted group with a bank account.

Each application will be assessed against the programme criteria and grants of up to £1,500 can be awarded for special projects and events.

Grants will be awarded at the discretion of the grants panel which is made up of a number of district councillors.

Application deadlines

  • Friday 12 April 2019
  • Friday 12 July 2019
  • Friday 11 October 2019
  • Friday 14 February 2020

You will need to provide the lead contact name from your organisation for the application. Your organisation must be based within Newark and Sherwood district and be primarily for Newark and Sherwood residents. 

Your application will need to tell us about the project or event, what will be achieved by delivering the project and why your club / organisation wants to do it? 

All projects must be completed and funding spent within 12 months of the start date. Grants will not be awarded if the project has started or already taken place. Please demonstrate how you know this project is needed in the area.

The panel places a higher priority on applications that demonstrate sustainability and continuation beyond the end of the project.  Please give details of how the activities will be financed in future without grant support.
