The Tramlines Trust

Applications for the Tramlines Trust 2023 are now closed! 2024 Applications will be open in Spring 2024.


The Tramlines Trust was born out of the desire to uplift and give back to the surrounding communities and culture at the very heart of Tramlines Festival.

The Trust increases annual fundraising and charitable donations that the festival makes, whilst making it easier for MORE grassroots organisations to apply for funding and receive support from Tramlines Festival.


In 2023 Tramlines raised £57,600, £28,100 went to local organisations through the Tramlines Trust Funding Grant with over 50% donated to Hillsborough based organisations. The remaining donations have been awarded to The Sarah Nulty Power of Music Foundation, Hillsborough Primary School and NSPCC.
