National Park City Festival Grant is Open!


Applications are now open for National Park City Festival community activity grants.

The Mayor of London is working with the National Park City Foundation, other partners, and Londoners to make London the world’s first National Park City this year. They’ll be marking this moment with the National Park City Festival in July, and they’d like you to help make it happen.

The festival runs from 20-28 July and will celebrate London’s great outdoor spaces. There’ll be fun activities from culture and health and fitness to wildlife, the environment and more. They are encouraging Londoners to discover new spaces and find fresh ways to get in touch with nature and want to give all Londoners, community groups and businesses the opportunity to take part. With your help, London can be greener, healthier and wilder.

The Mayor is offering community activity grants of £200-2000 to support organisations that want to hold festival activities in their local area. They particularly want to reach out to broader networks and attract audiences who traditionally under-use outdoor space.

Applications are open now with the deadline of 5pm on Thursday 21 March. All activities must take place during the National Park City Festival in July.

They would love to hear your fantastic ideas for festival activities from sing-a-long trails and wildlife-hotel building workshops, to park parkour and canal paddle boarding. For more information or to apply, visit Please also feel free to share with any relevant organisations who may be interested in taking part.

If you don’t need grant funding for your activity, you can still add it to the event listings and programme. More details will be posted soon.
