Our Funders

Frequency Festival is only made possible with the valued support, investment and backing of our Funders and Partners.  Their ongoing support ensures that Frequency and Lincoln continue to develop into a world-leading digital culture festival and one of the digital focal points in the UK.

Frequency Festival is produced by Threshold Studios in partnership with the University of Lincoln and supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Thank you to all of our past, current and future Funders and Partners.

Arts Council England

Arts Council England is the national development agency for creativity and culture. We have set out our strategic vision in Let’s Create that by 2030 we want England to be a country in which the creativity of each of us is valued and given the chance to flourish and where every one of us has access to a remarkable range of high quality cultural experiences. We invest public money from Government and The National Lottery to help support the sector and to deliver this vision. www.artscouncil.org.uk

Darren Henley, CEO at Arts Council England, said:

“We know creativity has the power to connect people, and after what has been an extraordinarily challenging time for most, it’s great to see people being given the chance to come together, discover new things, and to explore the digital world through immersive street art, live streams and performances.

We’re very proud to invest in Frequency Festival as it brings artists, creatives, and local people together in Lincoln to celebrate the very best emerging and developing digital culture.”

High Streets Heritage Action Zones Cultural Programme

The High Streets Heritage Action Zones is a £95 million government-funded programme led by Historic England, designed to secure lasting improvements and help breathe new life into our historic high streets for the communities and businesses that use them. Historic England is working with local people and partners to unlock the rich heritage on these high streets, through repair and improvement works as well as arts and cultural programmes, making them more attractive to residents, businesses, tourists and investors.

Simon Boase, High Streets Cultural Programme Manager, said:

“It’s great to be supporting the High Street HAZ Cultural Programme in Lincoln. The range of amazing festivals and other activities planned within the programme will be a fantastic way for residents and visitors to be inspired and to experience what makes Lincoln unique. I hope to see a great number of people engaging with the events and celebrating their local high street.”
