Funding announcement

We are delighted to report that we have been awarded £17,400 from the government's Culture Recovery Fund by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and distributed and by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

This funding will help us to make our collections more accessible, particularly while we are closed due to covid restrictions, with a web portal for our collections catalogue. We will be launching this as soon as possible with announcements to follow on our website and social media.

It will also enable us to employ an expert heritage consultant to research and write our next round of grant applications to keep the Trust financially viable.

It's wonderful to see mountain heritage represented in this funding - we plan to be #HereForCulture now and in the future.

#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage. With an unprecedented investment through the £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund, the government is #HereForCulture so it can weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.
