Welsh bands are being reminded that a new emergency fund of £100,000 aimed at community music making organisations has been launched in Wales alongside a re-launch of regular Lottery grants for music.

Arts Council of Wales and Welsh Government have each provided £50k for Ty Cerdd — Music Centre Wales to distribute, with brass bands able to apply.

Rescue, Resource, Restart aims to support music-making of any genre across Wales. The deadline for these emergency funds is 29nd January 2021.

Guidelines and full application details are on Ty Cerdd's website, and applications open on Thursday 7th January.
