Community Festive Fund

The Community Festive Fund can provide a small financial grant to community groups and organisations who are arranging a celebration for their local community or continuing to grow and develop an existing event which may already be held in Aberdeen City.

Groups may receive up to £350 for Christmas events and £500 for Hogmanay events, subject to eligibility and money available in the fund once all applications have been received for consideration.
