Arts Council England has announced a £5 million programme, administered by UK Community Foundations, to support voluntary and community organisations to develop creative and cultural activities across the country as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022.

The Arts Council England Let’s Create Jubilee Fund is made possible thanks to National Lottery players, who collectively raise £30 million for good causes each week.

Awards of up to £10,000 are available, and applicants are encouraged to partner with established artists, creatives and cultural organisations to develop their activities, ensuring that the Jubilee celebrations become an opportunity for communities throughout England to enjoy the best of the country’s culture and creativity, as well as celebrating an important milestone in our national history.

Across the UK the fund is being administered by UK Community Foundations on behalf of the Arts Council. In Greater Manchester, it will be administered by Forever Manchester.
