Do you fund comedy?

Creative Scotland provides funding to a large number of venues, organisations and festivals who deliver comedy through their programmes, for example Tron Theatre (Glasgow), Eden Court Theatre (Inverness), The Beacon (Greenock), Aberdeen Performing Arts and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Individuals and organisations involved in comedy are welcome to apply to our Open Fund. Applications are assessed against published criteria, assessing artistic and creative quality, public engagement, effective management and the financial viability of the project from the information provided. Applicants are required to make the case for public funding by demonstrating their vital contribution in increasing quality and access to their work.
