Let’s Create Jubilee Fund

Made possible with funding from the National Lottery, the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund is a £5million national programme supporting community and voluntary organisations in England to develop creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.

We are encouraging North and East Yorkshire community organisations to partner with established artists, creatives and cultural organisations to develop their activities.

Let’s ensure that The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations give people throughout England and the region the chance to experience the best of the country’s culture, whilst celebrating this important historical milestone.

Size of grants

You can apply for up to £10,000. Please note that for grants of £5,000 upwards, we expect that you will have a partnership with an artist, creative or cultural organisation that has had Arts Council England (ACE) funding within the last 4 years. You can find a link to a list of ACE funded artists and organisations in the Guidance for Applicants.

Who can apply?

The fund is open to voluntary and community organisations with charitable aims and working towards a common goal. Your organisation’s goal does not have to be solely around arts and culture, but your application and event must be arts and culture based.

We will fund organisations in North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, Hull and York. If you are not working in those places, you can find your nearest Community Foundation here.
