Arts information and funding
The Arts are alive in Brentwood!
Brentwood Borough has an extremely strong and dedicated arts community, consisting of over 70 arts organisations and societies, who deliver excellent high quality arts events throughout the year. Our participation numbers for the arts are high, meaning we have lots of people who regularly take part in an arts activity in their leisure time.
Brentwood Borough Council's Community Services department is keen to continue to support the development of local community arts groups, whether it be by providing advice about applying for grants, or hiring a venue. If you need help with an arts, culture, or community project, please complete the General Enquiry online form and we'll try our best to support you!
