Drumalis Arts was awarded £250 to help pay for two choral singing workshops, to take place between November this year and February, 2014. The objective is to enhance the skills and repertoires of local choirs and choral societies.

However, a request for £500 from Larne Choral Society towards a 2013 spring concert was turned down because the application showed that projected income exceeded expenditure.
