Ulster Scots Music and Dance Tuition Funding 2018

30 August 2017

The Ulster-Scots Agency will open the Music and Dance Tuition Programme for 2018 on the 4th September.

To assist groups interested in making an application to this programme the Ulster-Scots Agency in partnership with the Ulster-Scots Community Network have organised a series of public information events.

We fully recognise the disappointment experienced by many groups who were unsuccessful in the past due to the programme being significantly oversubscribed.  We expect a similar situation to arise this year and would therefore encourage your group to make every effort to attend the public information events and make yourselves fully aware of all the requirements of the 2018 programme.

The public information events will commence at 7.45pm at the following dates and locations.




Mon 11th Sept


Discover Ulster-Scots Centre



Manor Hotel, Ballymoney

Tues 12th Sept


Royal Hotel



Bannville House Hotel

Wed 13th Sept


Lislimnaghan Parish Hall



Drum Protestant Hall

Thurs 14th  Sept
