Funding available for community events

Are you planning a community event? Do you need a great space with lots of facilities? With funding from the Community Access Grant, you could hold your event at the Dunedin Centre or Forsyth Barr Stadium.

Community groups can apply for funds to help towards event costs such as venue hire and security. So far this year, funding from the Community Access Grant has been used for a wide range of events across both venues, including a Paralympics open day at the Stadium, a hiphop competition at the Town Hall, and a movie day out on the pitch.

There are a variety of spaces at the two venues including conference rooms, suites and lounges, so we havesomething to suit almost any type of event. To search our spaces and venues, use our Venue Select tool. 

The next round of funding is now open and applications will close on 1 October at 5pm. For details and an application form, visit
