Newcastle and Gateshead Funding Fair 2021

With 9 hours of Funding Fair over 3 days, this is our biggest event of the year, and forms the centrepiece of our activities for Small Charities Week 2021.

This is a single booking for all three sessions, running from Noon until 3pm on :

  • Day One - Wednesday 16 June
  • Day Two - Thursday 17 June
  • Day Three - Wednesday 23 June

Update: There will now be a separate Zoom link to use for each Day. A replacement Zoom link for Day Three will be sent on the day.  If you haven't already registered, you must book by 10am on Wednesday 23rd.

The events will be presented in half hour blocks per funder, starting on the hour and half-hour. Each funder will begin with a short presentation, followed by time for questions and clarifications from participants. You can either dip in and out to hear about the funders you want to know more about, or choose to stay for the whole of each session if you prefer.

The Funding Fair is a live event and won't be available as a recording so it's really important that you book your free ticket in advance. 

To register, book a single ticket for any or all of the three days through Eventbrite:

Joining instructions for Zoom will be sent out 24 hours in advance of each session.
