Events Grant

The Council is committed to supporting local businesses and tourism as well as having a leading role in promoting and celebrating Tendring’s culture and heritage.  This has never been so important as we need to encourage people to return to the town / village centres so that our local independent businesses and performers can re-establish their importance to not only the community but also the tourist trade.

Therefore grants of £500 or £1000 are available to help organisations and event planners to fund town centre events.

If you think you would be interested in applying for this grant, your event must comply with our terms and conditions which include the following criteria:

  • The event must be held within Tendring town / village centres or on the coastline adjacent to the town centre.
  • Local independent traders (unless we do not have the required services within Tendring) and where possible local performers are commissioned to be part of the event. 
  • No chains or multiple businesses are to be used unless there is evidence of a specific service that only they can provide.

To apply for this grant, please complete the application form found in the 'Useful Documents' section of this page, and return to

Full terms and conditions can be found within the application form.
