Arts Council England Let's Create Jubilee Fund

The Let’s Create Jubilee Fund will support voluntary and community groups to develop creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022. The fund has been created by Arts Council England (ACE) with funds from the National Lottery, and is being distributed in partnership with UK Community Foundations.

The fund is open to voluntary and community organisations with charitable aims and working towards a common goal which does not have to be based solely around arts and culture. This could include youth groups, parent/carer groups and volunteer organisations.

Applicants can apply for grants from £750 to £10,000.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to partner with an artist, creative or cultural organisation that has been in receipt of ACE funding within the last four years to help deliver their project. Although this is not essential in general, the largest awards (£5,000 to £10,000) would be expected to involve this sort of partnership.

To be eligible projects should engage with at least one of the artforms which ACE supports through its funding. These are:

  • Music
  • Theatre
  • Dance
  • Visual arts
  • Literature
  • Combined arts – including festivals and carnivals
  • Museum and library activities.

Applications from Nottingham organisations are to be made through the application form on the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation (NCF) website. The closing date for completed applications is Monday 28 February 2022.

All applicants will have a funding decision by Friday 1 April 2022. The project can begin from 1 April so that preparation can take place such as rehearsals etc. Public-facing activity should take place in June near the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend. The project end date can be in August to include any evaluation and final payments.

Visit the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation website for full eligibility criteria and to make your application.
