The Fenton Arts Trust


The Trust is an arts charity, one which focuses its efforts specifically on the support of artists at the beginning of their careers. Each year there are twenty five to thirty beneficiaries.

The Trust’s overall aim is to give encouragement and financial support to those actively contributing to the creative arts in the U.K. It seeks to assist individuals and organisations who are making a worthwhile contribution to the artistic and cultural life of this country. In particular it wishes to support artists at the beginning of their careers, the often-expressed desire of our founder.

The Trust has three objectives:

  • to support final year or postgraduate students through the award of scholarships or bursaries
  • to provide grants which will support or reward work or performance by individuals early in their careers
  • to provide grants for institutions or organisations that share these aims.

The Fenton Arts Trust Grants are available to support individual works, activities, performances or prizes in the fields of drama, painting, sculpture, ballet, music and poetry.


The trustees meet to discuss applications 3 times per year
