CULTURE RECOVERY FUND GRANT

We are delighted 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 has been a huge support to the work of All Hallows, allowing us to open our building to the public once again and provide a welcome to the local community, visitors and City Workers as they gradually begin to return to the City. 

In addition to supporting staffing, volunteers, overhead costs and the regular maintenance costs associated with preserving a Grade 1 listed heritage site, the grant has enabled 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.
