Sponsoring the Arts


As a major contributor to the national economy, we are committed to supporting the Arts nationally and regionally, encouraging the development of art and culture wherever our airports are based.

Manchester Airports Group is committed to investing in the arts, enriching the arts and culture in the regions in which it operates. We believe that a thriving theatre and arts scene help support inbound tourism and inward investment.

Since the arts sponsorship programme began, more than 8 million has been allocated to arts sponsorship projects. Our approach has been to support a range of schemes - from high profile organizations to smaller community initiatives - and to promote art forms to those who would not normally have access to them.

We are now accepting applications for Arts Sponsorship funding for 2015/16. The deadline for applications is the 31st December 2014, with all applicants being notified of their success by the end of March 2015.
