East Lindsey District Council’s East Lindsey Live (ELL) programme has helped to promote more than 500 cultural, heritage and sporting events since 2012.
ELL was set up as a direct legacy to the London 2012 Olympic Games and aims to promote events which have a direct impact on their local community and economy.
The accreditation programme allows community events to carry the East Lindsey Live branding and can help promote the events through its website and the East Lindsey Messenger residents’ magazine.
The council’s portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism, Coun Adam Grist, said: “East Lindsey Live is an important tool in promoting the many varied culture, heritage and sporting events right here in East Lindsey – of which there are hundreds every year. We are proud of this diversity and want to help celebrate and promote it to encourage more people to visit the district and enjoy all it has to offer.
“Applying for East Lindsey Live accreditation is free and easy to do, so you really have nothing to lose. These events show that East Lindsey is a place to visit for culture, heritage and sport and ultimately will benefit the local economy.”
