Join us for a workshop to find out about the Rethinking Parks programme - a £1million fund from Nesta, the Big Lottery Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund to support new business models for public parks. Grants of up to £100k will be available for parks innovators, so come and discuss your ideas with us and find out how to apply.

The event will:

  • Provide you with more detail about the Rethinking Parks programme and how to apply for funding to trial your parks innovation
  • Provide a space to discuss and develop your own ideas for parks innovations, get input from Nesta, HLF and Big Lottery Fund, and pick up some new skills in different innovation methods to help bring your idea to life.
