GrantFinder – Radcliffe Trust Accepting Applications For Music And Heritage Projects

13th July 2023

Radcliffe Trust is offering grants averaging between £2,500 and £7,500 for charities, not-for-profit groups, and exempt organisations for projects that fall under the following categories:


Funding for classical music performance and training especially chamber music, composition, and music education. This includes:

  • Composition and contemporary music – in the case of commission applications the lead composer must be named.
  • Bursaries for courses and summer schools; limited to UK-based students.
  • Music therapy and special needs.
  • Academic research.
  • Youth orchestras.
  • Performance projects.
  • Educational projects – excluding applications from individual mainstream primary and secondary schools.
  • Miscellaneous.

Heritage & Crafts.

Funding for the development of the skills, knowledge and experience that underpin the UK’s traditional cultural heritage and crafts sectors. This includes support for:

  • Emerging craftspeople.
  • Craft and conservation projects and training.
  • Projects demonstrating creative outcomes by designer-makers.
  • Projects with potential for capacity building within the sector.
  • Special needs projects focusing on the therapeutic benefits of skills development.

Other areas of cultural creativity related to heritage and crafts may also be considered, including theatre, performance, and literature, especially where projects can be shown to contribute to the promotion and development of high-level skills among early career practitioners and disadvantaged groups.

There are typically rounds per year, with trustee meetings held in June and December. Groups can apply for both a Music grant and a Heritage & Crafts grant in the same funding round.

The next deadline for applications is 31 July 2023.
