By Dunedin Venues | Posted: Monday January 30, 2017

Have you ever wanted to host your community event in a larger venue with access to more facilities? The Community Access Grant will help you access funding to host your event at Forsyth Barr Stadium or the Dunedin Centre.

Whether you want to put on a school play at the Dunedin Town Hall or a sports tournament on the pitch at the Stadium, you may be entitled to funding to help make this happen.

Community users can apply for funding through the Community Access Grant to get free or subsidised venue rental at Forsyth Barr Stadium or the Dunedin Centre. Past events have included a movie day on the pitch, concerts in the Dunedin Town Hall and an international science festival event.

Applications for the funding can be submitted during two funding rounds each year.

Applications for the first funding round are open until Sunday 5 March at 5pm. A second round will commence on Friday 1 September.
