Our Colchester

Our Colchester BID open the 2023 Create Fund.

Our Colchester Business Improvement District (BID) has launched the application process for the March 2023 Create Fund initiative. The BID is welcoming applications from organisations looking for help in funding for projects and initiatives that will increase footfall and interest within the city centre.

Previous projects that have had funding from the Create Fund include the Anti-Loo Roll Festival, Colchester Pride, Interactive storytelling performances from Funnelwick Limb, Colchester Fringe, Colchester Eco Festival and many more.

The BID encourages community groups, associations and organisations looking to put on events and initiatives in the city that are in need of additional funding to apply through this initiative.

BID Manager Sam Good says "It's great to launch the Create Fund again this year. We've seen some brilliant successes from this funding initiative before, including large scale festivals and community events which bring positive attention to Colchester City Centre. As this year we are celebrating City Status across the city, we highly recommend considering getting an application in if your organisation is planning a celebratory event within the BID Zone.

This is the perfect opportunity for organisations looking to boost their funding for a project they are looking to hold in Colchester."

The deadline for this fund is Friday 31st March 2023, at 5 pm.
