Briefing Notes

Dear potential contestant, dare I say potential winner…

You are invited to apply to our 10th Dragons’ Den!

Our Dragons’ Den community event is designed to enable residents and organisations to receive money and support to carry out projects that will benefit and improve the communities within Radstock and Westfield (including Writhlington, Clandown, Tyning and Haydon).

Residents, groups and organisations are invited to apply to take part to win up to £500 each – and make good things happen in our community!

  • The first 15 applicants will be given the opportunity to pitch, so get your applications in quickly once the application process is open! 
  • The community* decides! Applicants will be making their pitch to the audience (made up of residents), who will vote for their favourite 5 projects.
  • There will be up to ten winners!
  • There will be cake!
  • There will be fun and a chance to connect with the community and stakeholders (last time from Quartet Community Foundation, TNL Community Fund, Somer Valley Rotary, and 3SG).

The application form is simple and quick to fill in, all you need is an idea to make your community an even better place to live!
