Funding available for Eurovision celebrations

This May, Liverpool will host the Eurovision Song Contest. The event should be led by last year’s winners – Ukraine – but due to the ongoing invasion, the UK will host the competition on their behalf. The Eurovision Festival will land in Liverpool on Monday 1 May and run until Sunday 14 May 2023.

As host city, Liverpool will deliver a festival featuring events, activities and installations to welcome the world to our great city, to celebrate European cultures and heritage and to act as a platform for modern Ukraine, telling a story of an ambitious, progressive country.

Culture Liverpool (in partnership with the National Heritage Lottery Fund) has launched a EuroGrant funding pot which is now open for applications.

Communities across the Liverpool City Region are invited to get into the Eurovision spirit by hosting workshops and activities, events, street parties and shindigs that celebrate the competition itself, the relationship with our friends in Ukraine and the wider European heritage, communities and culture in Liverpool.

Funding of between £250 and £2000 is available for schools and community groups to deliver activities in May and June 2023.

The closing date for applications is 5pm 29 March 2023.

Successful applicants will be informed by Thursday 6 April 2023.

Further information, including eligibility and how to apply, can be found on the Culture Liverpool website.
