First tranche Discover England Fund Awards Announced

Posted on

VisitEngland have today announced the first 7 successful round one projects for the Discover England Fund.  Although it isn’t absolutely clear from the original wording of the announcement I can confirm that this is the first tranche and other announcements of first round awards will follow during September. I am guessing, and it is a guess albeit educated, that if you have made a bid and you have not been contacted yet to confirm your ability to deliver in the limited time frame allowed, then you are highly unlikely to have been successful in what is a heavily oversubscribed first round. VE will start contacting unsuccessful applicants just as soon as the process and their finite resource allows.  See today’s announcement at:

Meanwhile applications for the bigger and longer (2017/18 -2018/19) round 2 bids are now being taken at:
