Since Roman times, Aldgate has been a multicultural hub of enterprise, innovation and creativity. Now through the 'Our Aldgate' crowdfunding programme, residents, workers and other Aldgate people can continue this legacy in a whole new way. By enabling all the people who inhabit Aldgate every day to collaborate on amazing unique and creative projects, we can ensure we have a place which everyone loves - whether they live, work, study, worship or play here. From music festivals to art installations, guerrilla gardening to pop up markets, if you have an idea to make Aldgate even better, this is your opportunity to make it happen. The City of London Corporation has a £30k fund with a maximum pledge of £5,000 available to support projects crowdfunding in Aldgate. If your project fits our criteria, we may be able to help your crowdfunding campaign on its way. See below for more information on the process, the fund and how you can get involved.

The free community events will commence with a Lantern Parade involving the spectrum of Aldgate's wider-community. School children, families, residents, community groups, businesses, artists, community organisations and individuals will join the second annual Lantern Parade, which will launch from Sir John Cass's Foundation Primary school playground; weave through the streets of Aldgate and along the High Street to the beat of the Barbican’s Drum Works, and culminate in Aldgate's new public square for the Winter Fete. Aldgate's Winter Fete will spill across the square and into the neighbouring St Botolph without Aldgate church, and will commence with the lighting of the new Christmas tree, which will hold 35,000 lights. The fete will celebrate the winter season with a showcase of the cultures, talent and businesses which comprise the area, and will include performances from choirs and groups from local schools and the wider-community. A fantastic festive evening for all!
