From Chinese New Year to St George’s Day and World Environment Day to Chanukah, the GLA supports a range of city-wide events and celebrations for the benefit of London residents, businesses and visitors. The Mayor is committed to ensuring that London continues to build on its international reputation for hosting world-class events and festivals and we welcome new ideas.
About the GLA Events programme
The Mayor commissions a range of events on Trafalgar Square and in strategic venues across the capital to celebrate the culture and communities of London. Often these events are organised in partnership with established groups or organisations, which in turn provide financial, programming or other forms of support to make the staging of such events possible. More information on individual events happening over the next 12 months can be found on these pages.
As the strategic authority for London, we occasionally support non-GLA led events, which we think will contribute to the Mayor's strategic objectives. This support is either in-kind, or, in a limited number of cases, financial, but we do not operate a grant giving system where funds can be regularly applied for.We do not fund individual local or borough-wide events unless there is a strong London-wide or strategic link to Mayoral priorities
We also consider use of Trafalgar Square for commercial events (subject to a venue hire fee) and assess applications for demonstrations and protests on the square. For terms, conditions and fees please visit www.london.gov.uk/trafalgarsquare.
How to submit a proposal
If you feel that your event can make a strong case for meeting the above criteria, we welcome new proposals and ideas for consideration. Please send in a proposal in the first instance, explaining who your organisation is, your objectives, existing funding arrangements and expected outcomes and legacy of your event.
