Our Funding and Resources section has everything you need to plan and prepare for a major event in Wales - from the most suitable venue, to logistics providers, volunteers and work placements.

Wales can boast some fantastic state-of-the-art indoor venues, with 74,500 capacity, to inspirational natural landscapes for running, cycling, diving to name just a few. There are 3 million of us, warm and free-spirited people in a country passionate about sport and culture. You can find some of these venues and services here.

We provide financial assistance for events. If your event can potentially benefit Wales economically, and enhance its profile, you may be eligible for funding. View the Funding page for details of the assessment process.
