The Skiddle Promoter Fund, which is supported by the Night Time Industries Association (NTIA), will be awarded to event organisers specifically running student-focused events in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each applicant can bid for a grant of up to £1,000 to help organise a student-centred event in either September or October 2023.
