These events are funded by the Welcome Back Fund. The scheme, backed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), was established to support local authority projects designed to help the recovery of town centres. The Welcome Back Fund is providing councils across England a share of £56 million from the ERDF to support the safe return to high streets and help build back better from the pandemic.
