£7 million funding for events industry confirmed

Events businesses who have previously received COVID-19 support through the Events Industry Support Fund (EISF) will be automatically contacted from this week regarding top-up financial support.

Today (Thursday 28 January) we have announced further details of the additional £7million of funding announced by the Scottish Government last December to help the sector deal with the ongoing impact of COVID-19.

The funding will be delivered in two parts. Top-up payments will be made to existing recipients of EISF awards while a second fund, Events Industry Support Fund 2, will be set to receive new applications.

The changes acknowledge the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and their impact on the events industry, with many event businesses having not worked since March 2020
