Introduction

Festival Fortnight is an exciting mix of sporting, cultural, social, academic and recreational events and activities co-ordinated by LEAP Sports Scotland. This year's Festival Fortnight will take place from 17th - 30th June, as opposed to the usual dates of 1st - 14th June and events can take place anywhere in Scotland. 

LEAP have created this survey to record key information from those who would like to run an event as part of the festival and do not require financial support from LEAP. It's also a useful planning tool for anyone interested in running an event.
 
Events can include anything from taster sessions to tournaments, debates to film screenings and tours to quizzes. You can check out last years programme or the Festival Fortnight Handbook for inspiration. Although we encourage a wide variety of events, we do require that they meet at least one of the festival's aims and you will need to clearly demonstrate this in order to be included in the programme:
  • To increase the visibility of LGBTI people in sport
  • To increase the participation of LGBTI people in sport
  • To raise awareness of LGBTI issues in sport
  • To raise awareness of wider equality and human rights issues in sport
 
The festival brochure will be printed in May, therefore the deadline for listing your event is April 16th, 5pm. Anything submitted after this date can be promoted as part of the festival online but not within the brochure, which will limit its reach.
 
Once you have submitted your event listing, we will be in touch shortly after to approve your event. 

We strongly recommend that you read the Festival Fortnight Partner Handbook for more information on how the festival works, further tips on writing the application and to see what's required from you in terms of communication and promotion.

Thank you for your interest in Festival Fortnight. If you have any questions or require help with idea development or planning, please do not hesitate to email sirri@leapsports.org.
