2023 Bursaries

Posted 23rd October 2022

The festival committee would once again like to offer at least 2 bursaries to assist individuals in the furtherance of their personal development within their chosen arts discipline.


In order to be considered, applicants must have competed in the 2023 Carlisle and District Music and Drama Festival. Consideration for a bursary is open to all competitors, irrespective of results achieved in the festival.


At least 2 bursaries of £250 each are available.

Final decisions about the recipients of the bursaries will be made before the end of May. 

Bursaries should be used for activities undertaken in the UK which support an 

individual's artistic development e.g. travelling expenses for college/university auditions, tuition fees etc. Concert/theatre tickets or activities which involve working in the arts and from which an income might be drawn will not be considered.

Closing Date for applications: Saturday 29th April, 2023
