Commemorative Fund Grants




In the Budget of March 2015 the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced a grant of £1m for the commemoration of the 600th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt (25 October 1415).


These were the Arrangements for Applying for a Grant

By a grant agreement between the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Support of the DCMS and Agincourt 600 (COI 1154991) it is agreed that the Secretary of State will pay up to £1m in a grant to Agincourt 600: ‘the grant will be used to contribute to the costs of events and educational activities organised by Agincourt 600 and subsidiary organisations to mark the 600th anniversary of the battle of Agincourt across the UK and Europe. The Grant shall be used solely for these purposes and shall not be applied other than in accordance with the terms of the agreement’.

The Agincourt 600 Commemorative Fund will consider applications for:

Any event, activity, display or product (digital or otherwise) which will increase public understanding of the battle and its origins, conduct, legacy and its meaning today, and which will bring it to the attention of new audiences.
