Summer events get financial backing

Published: 09 November 2021

A new financial support scheme will allow organisers of large-scale events to forge ahead with their planning this summer.

The Events Transition Support Payment will cover 90% of eligible unrecoverable costs for paid, ticketed events with over 5000 attendees if organisers are forced to cancel or postpone an event due to COVID-19 public health measures.

Events must be scheduled to begin between 17 December 2021 and 3 April 2022 to be eligible for the payment.

More information about the scheme, including eligibility and how to apply can be found on our website.
