Telford & Wrekin 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Clifton Team

As you are probably aware, Telford & Wrekin Council have set aside funds to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Telford and have recently announced that they intend to release the first tranche of that funding in early 2018 and the application deadline for such a grant closes on 23rd October.

The release consists of grants up to £2,000 to fund projects in celebration.

We will be applying for an award and would like to hold a five series film festival in the last two weeks of February to hold films where there is a connection with the borough through arts, culture, media or sport.  The grant will enable us to hold the films free of charge except for one where we anticipate holding an afternoon tea as well which will be separately charged.

While we have provisionally identified five films from requests we already have we would encourage anybody from the local community to get in contact with us to request a film to be shown.

If you would like such a film to be shown please get in contact with us at with details of the film and how it links to the borough.
