BIG Lottery Funding

hi_big_e_lrg_pinkOur Fundraising efforts for 2017 have got off to a FANTASTIC start by the amazing confirmed news that we’re being partially funded by BIG Lottery fund!

Following their review of our event activities, we were thrilled to recently receive a grant award of several thousand pounds from BIG Lottery to be able to host Blantyre’s Music Festival, “Live at Livvies 2” in Summer 2017.

The grant award, (the largest our group has received to date) is hugely appreciated and will be used entirely at the ‘Live at Livvies’ event, running alongside Blantyre Gala to ensure it brings all the community together. We are planning amazing acts, bands with music of many different genres provided.

The heavy rain dampened things last year if you recall, but this grant award allows our group to build on our success, provide rain shelters, more tables and seating, upgrade the stage and equipment, provide additional toilets and of course to make it the best it can be! We’re already planning some amazing talent with license application.

“Live at Livvies 2” will take place in Summer 2016. Date to be confirmed following partner discussions and license permissions, and we anticipate it will be one weekend in June.
