SWF Fund: Burns Day 2021
BEMIS Scotland are calling on our communities to begin 2021 with a positive celebration of Burns Night on 25th January 2021. Burns Night offers us the opportunity to share food together – though this year this will have to be remotely. Food, music, poetry, and storytelling are all parts of a multicultural Burns night and can form part of any event. So please, consider joining us and others across the country by taking part in our Scottish Winter Festivals small grants scheme and bring multicultural Burns Nights to homes across the country. Grants of up to £1,000 are available to organisations to host a remote Burns Day event.
Deadline : Friday 15 January
