Arts and Entertainment
There is an exciting
and vibrant arts scene in South Lakeland with a very
infrastructure. The district has a wealth of arts organisations,
artists and voluntary groups who all contribute to providing a high
quality year round arts programme for local residents and
We support the arts and arts development in the district through
the Arts and Events service and its main grants
The arts and events service endeavours to make available a
broad-based, quality, district-wide arts and events programme for
the participation and enjoyment of residents and visitors both by
direct and indirect provision.
To achieve this, we work in partnership with individual
artists, groups and key organisations in the district to establish
a balanced programme which responds to local needs and reflects
both the interests of a rural and urban population.
Funding via grants
is given to a number of organisations and
groups to support the significant arts programme in the
Grants are also available to support
local arts development initiatives and arts events within
communities, particularly in rural areas.
