Clans, clan societies and 'recognised families' are among those invited to apply for funding for an event taking place outside Edinburgh and Glasgow in 2020 or 2021, Event Scotland has announced.

The Scottish Clans & Historical Figures Event Fund supports the growth of events taking place in Scotland that publicly celebrate clans, recognised families and historical figures using their stories and legacy to bring communities together.

Round 7 is now open for applications from clans, clan societies and recognised families as well as non-clan organisations planning events which publicly celebrate clan history and heritage and/or historical figures, using their stories and legacy to bring communities together.

How do I apply?

Strong applications will appeal to locals and visitors alike, attract a diverse audience through accessible programming and provide meaningful opportunities to engage with Scottish clans and/or history makers.
 
Eligible events applying to Round 7 must take place between 01 January 2020 and 31 December 202 and the deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 11 October 2019. For more information, visit Event Scotland.
