Community Events Fund and Training Programme 2017

In Spring 2017 EventLambeth provided funding and professional events management training to 17 different organisations across the borough to support their events.  The organisations to receive grants, of varying amounts, were:

Bandstand Beds Association, Blenheim Gardens RMO, Brixton Advice Centre, Centre 70, Clapham Park Project, Cowley Resident Management Organisation, Friends of Clapham Common, Friends of Waterloo Carnival, Love West Dulwich, Oaks Avenue Residents Association, Roots and Shoots, St Martins TRA, Streatham Youth and Community Trust, Studio Voltaire, Tulse Hill Forum, and West Norwood FEAST

The programme aimed to develop skills and capacity for events management within Lambeth communities and to support the practical delivery of quality community events and festivals in the borough. To do this, we provided:

  • Event Management training to increase the level of skills and knowledge of Lambeth’s new and existing community event organisers; and
  • Funding to provide a financial boost to enable those events to develop in quality and scale.
