Grimsby dock tower and corporation bridge

A warm welcome.

If you’re working in the creative industries in North East Lincolnshire then Spark Grimsby is here for you.

You might just have the spark of an idea or be out of the starting blocks already – using your kitchen table as your HQ. Or maybe there’s a hundred of you in a bespoke studio.

Spark Grimsby welcomes you all.

We can provide fully funded advice to help your idea become reality, or to support your business to explode and reach its potential. We can introduce you to peer groups or help you access specific support. All with the aim of Sparking your success.

Spark Grimsby has been commissioned by Grimsby Creates, the Cultural Development Fund programme to support creative businesses.

Be part of Spark Grimsby.

Firstly, let’s get it out of the way – there’s no fee. Our business support service is part of the Grimsby Creates programme, and is supported using public funding by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the Arts Council England. We’re here to see you and your business light up the North East Lincolnshire skyline.

Getting involved is easy – simply contact us – registration is straightforward and can be completed over a Zoom call or a quick coffee (once we’re allowed to meet)

But there’s more to it than just receiving brilliant support to compliment your business – be part of Spark Grimsby. Join our directory, meet others in your sector – and meet some from outside your sector. Learn and grow together. Of course, you’ll also find out about events of interest to you before anyone else.
