We want to support community celebrations and events, particularly those that give local talent a chance to be showcased. This fund is designed to receive applications for events and projects where this is either central to the activity or where there is a significant element of public engagement. We are pleased for this to be across any art form or theme important to the North Kensington communities. 

Applications are now open for round two of our Celebrations & Events Grant for 2023/24, covering events to take place between October 2023 and March 2024. £15,000 is available in round two.

In round one, we distributed £35,400 to 21 local organisations. You can see a full list of grant recipients from round one here.

Please carefully read the Guidelines for Applicants prior to completing your application form.  



All applications for round two must be received by 9am on Monday 2 October 2023.

Applications can only be for events happening after 20 October 2023, and before 31 March 2024.

The maximum grant awarded is £2,500 for any one event regardless of collaborations or partnerships between organisations.

Applications will be assessed within week of the deadline, with all applicants notified of the outcome by Tuesday 10 October. 


Events on the Westway estate 

If you are applying for funding to host an event on the Westway estate, you will be asked to apply for a license for the space before your funding is released. You can apply for licenses to host events on different parts of the Westway estate at Events Venue & Equipment Hire - Westway Trust 

Applicants should allow a minimum of six weeks for the license application process. 

If your license for space on the Westway estate is unsuccessful, you will be asked to provide evidence of permission to host the event elsewhere before any funding is released.
