As part of Belfast’s Christmas animation programme, pending council approval, they are offering grants to help neighbourhoods brighten up their shared spaces in line with the look and feel of the city centre lighting and animation. 

The two one-off grant schemes are open to not for profit groups and to encourage collaborations between groups with a focus on shared neighbourhood activity.
