Festivals and events play a vital role in bringing communities together, transforming experience and perceptions of place and attracting visitors to the region. TVCA’s approach to investment will be to build upon the existing assets of the region to shape an exciting, diverse, magnetic and widely recognised year-round offer of the festivals ecology and identify areas of growth and need.

We are keen to hear from all types of festivals, in terms of type, audience and scale, both established and new to help Tees Valley Combined Authority gain a richer understanding of the festivals currently on offer in the region.

By submitting information on your festival, it will enable us to contact you with relevant funding and business support opportunities offered by TVCA and Tees Valley Business. This information will also help to inform future support and investment that TVCA can offer through its Creative and Visitor Economies Growth Programme.
