Funding available for community events

Community groups can apply for funds to help towards event costs such as venue hire and security at the Dunedin Centre or Forsyth Barr Stadium. The funding has been used for a wide range of events across both venues, including a movie day on the pitch, which will be held Sunday 10 February to raise funds for Cat Rescue Dunedin. There are a variety of spaces at the two venues including conference rooms, suites and lounges, so we have something to suit almost any type of event. To search our spaces and venues, use our Venue Select tool. The next round of funding opens on 1 February and applications will close on 1 March at 5pm. For details and an application form, visit
