Please note: that some of the International Events Programme is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund Programme 2014 to 2020. The Scottish Government is the managing authority for the European Regional Development Fund Programme.

Beacon Events Programme

It is expected that applicants for funding through this programme will have previously received support through the National Events Programme and that, as such, events take place outwith Glasgow and Edinburgh. Funding proposals for events that are eligible for support through the National or International programmes should continue to apply through these routes.
