CULTURE RECOVERY FUND GRANT

We are delighted to announce that All Hallows has been successful in our application for a DCMS Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage grant, along with 2,700 other arts, culture and heritage organisations across the UK.

This grant will be a huge support to us in the coming months, whilst things continue to be uncertain and our regular income remains very much depleted. We will use the funding to support the work of All Hallows as we open our building to the public once again and welcome the local community, visitors and City Workers as they gradually begin to return to the City. 

In addition to supporting staffing and overhead costs, training for staff and volunteers, and the regular maintenance costs associated with preserving this Grade 1 listed heritage site, the grant will also enable us to improve access to the Crypt Museum and help us create a more covid-safe environment for our visitors. We are also developing our online heritage and cultural presence, so that people can continue to engage with the life, history and culture of the church whether or not they are physically able to come to the building. This means that the heritage of All Hallows can be enjoyed safely by more local people and visitors from near and far, as we come out the other side of the pandemic.

This project is funded by the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage. The Culture Recovery Fund is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England, using funds provided by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. The programme was established to safeguard cultural and heritage organisations across England from the economic impact of COVID-19.
