Council agrees funding to help events affected by Covid-19

Argyll and Bute Council will invest up to £250,000 in events and festivals to help the local economy combat the impact of COVID-19. 

A range of cultural events, which had been awarded grants by the council’s Strategic Events and Festivals Fund and Supporting Communities Fund, cannot go ahead in 2020/21 because of COVID-19 restrictions. 

The council’s Business Continuity Committee have agreed three measures to address this and the impact on the economy.
