I blogged recently regarding Loughries planned Mini Ulster Scots Festival later this year - well the funding has come 'on stream' for the community festival funding from Ards Borough Council, forms to be submitted by Thursday 28th April 4pm.
Is there an end to all this form filling?......well the Ards Council Community Festival Funding is very straightforward application form, concise and plain - sadly I have found other 'Funders' application forms overlong, complex and at the end of a very long process, they only grant you a percentage of the required amount which is needed - to put on a high quality, professional Ulster Scots Event!
I have been working on this a little over recent weeks - here are the plans to date.
Thursday 6th October - Historical Talk / Lecture: Further details to follow.
Saturday 8th October - Coach Trip 'Tour of Ards Peninsula Part 2' Historical trip around the bottom half of the Ards Peninsula with the ever popular tour guide Mr. Mark Thompson.
Friday 14th October - Musical Evening featuring 'The Broken String Band' more details to follow however the event will take place in the Londonderry Room Town Hall.
So folks if you are interested please drop me an e-mail for further details.
