As a heritage building, charity, and events space, we rely heavily on our visitors and supporters. Due to the Covid-19 crisis,we have been unable to welcome the public throughout 2020 which has had a significant impact on our income. If you would like to help, please consider donating, becoming a Friend, or signing up to our mailing list.
We have an online donation page here, and you can join the Friends scheme or mailing list by filling out the enquiries form below.
For more information about how you can help us, please check out the Be an Angel page.
We really appreciate any help offered, large or small. Every penny makes a difference, and will help us open our doors to visitors again.
We need to say a huge thank you to Lottery Players all over the UK, because we've received a lifeline this summer in the form of a Heritage Emergency Grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund - £49,300 in total to cover some of our ongoing costs whilst we've been closed due to Covid and not earning any income. We are also very grateful to have been awarded £156,500 from the government's Culture Recovery Fund which will help to pay the bills until we're able to open again - we hope this will be in spring 2021.
We really look forward to welcoming you all back before too long!
