Grants available for Ilkley and Keighley Platinum Jubilee events

The Platinum Jubilee celebrates 70 years of Her Majesty the Queen’s reign and to mark this occasion Bradford Council is offering small grants, of up to £250.

Communities are encouraged to come together to join with the national celebrations that will take place between 2 and 6 June 2022.

People all over the country are being invited to come together with friends, neighbours and others they don’t yet know for street parties, picnics or barbeques. The weekend will be an opportunity to celebrate all that Britain’s diverse communities hold in common.

An event can be anything from a small gathering in a garden, park or driveway, to a larger party with trestle tables down the middle of your street.

Many neighbours and groups will be able to organise without any additional funding. For those who will need a little help we have some funding to help as many people take part as possible.

We are able to award small grants of up to £250 to support local Platinum Jubilee activities and events across the Bradford district. This can include any of the following:

A spokesperson for Bradford Council said; "We are particularly keen to fund events that will offer opportunities to bring different communities or generations together or that involve young people in designing and leading the celebrations in their communities and will consider applications of up to £500 who provide strong evidence of this."

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday, 29 April 2022.
