As part of our Wellingborough Stories programme, we are offering grants of between £250 and £750 for local communities to share their own stories as part of the Wellingborough Stories Festival in May 2023.

The Brief

Wellingborough Stories is a community heritage project that aims to capture untold stories from the town’s diverse communities, and represent them through a number of artworks, activities and events engaging local people. So far we have gathered over 35 local stories in partnership with a wide range of community groups and organisations. We have now commissioned three artists to bring these stories to life in new and innovative ways.

The project is funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund and supported by Support Northamptonshire, Greatwell Homes, Teamwork Trust, Northamptonshire Libraries, and the Chester House Estate.

Made With Many are seeking local community groups/organisations that want to be involved in delivering events and activities during the festival itself. These need to be open, accessible events that share real life experiences and stories of Wellingborough. We’ll be looking to fund a range of activities to create a varied and diverse festival programme, that offers opportunities for engaging both individuals and families, and include a variety of art forms.
