Cultural grant returns with funding up to £10k

Watford Borough Council and Watford Palace Theatre have launched the second round of funding of up to £10,000, for local creative businesses and freelancers to support their contribution to the town's cultural landscape.

Funded by Watford Borough Council and delivered by Watford Palace Theatre, it builds on the success of the first round of funding launched last year.


To be eligible, you must be a local cultural or creative business, collective, or freelancer who contributes to the town's cultural landscape.
