We are thrilled to announce that we have been successful with being awarded our full Heritage Lottery grant for our 'Revealing City Hall' project. Since investing initial development funds last year, the Heritage Lottery Fund team have been really impressed by the local support from the Cornish community that has gone into creating the foundations for the full project. Some of you will have been involved with our memory and stories collecting and pop-up performances.
The grant will ensure the conservation and reinvigoration of Christopher Eales’ 1846 Grade II building’s Boscawen Street and Lemon Quay public spaces that currently envelop our auditorium. Alongside this, 'Revealing City Hall' will unveil the 350-year history of the City Hall site and will enable the local community and visitors to discover the evolving heritage of City Hall and its very unique story.
Commenting on the award, Julien Boast, Director of Hall For Cornwall said: “We’re delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund has given us this support and after all the research and preparations so energetically undertaken, we are now eager to unleash our building’s cultural and heritage potential and give expression to this enormous confidence in us”.
