Event Fund announced for Homecoming Scotland 2014

28th March 2012

Homecoming Scotland 2014 will welcome visitors from around the world to join the inspirational year-long celebration.

A 3miliion event fund has been announced for Homecoming Scotland 2014.

The Homecoming Scotland 2014 events programme will be themed around ancestry and the Scottish Government's Years of Focus (food and drink, active, creative and natural).

The Years of Focus have helped to sustain the momentum generated by Homecoming Scotland 2009 by developing additional ways for the tourism and events industries to work together in preparation for the 2014 celebrations.

A call for funding applications to event owners and organisers will be made in the summer, when full criteria and guidelines will be launched.

Homecoming Scotland 2014 is being led by Tom Chambers who joined the team at EventScotland in February as Homecoming Scotland Director. Prior to this Tom was Major Projects Manager with the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

As well as those events directly funded through Homecoming, a partner programme will be developed to ensure the widest possible involvement of Scotland's communities in the celebrations.
