We’re delighted to announce that Llanthony Secunda Priory is one of 445 heritage organisations across the country set to receive a lifesaving financial boost from the government thanks to the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help them through the coronavirus pandemic.
445 organisations will share £103 million to help restart vital reconstruction work and maintenance on cherished heritage sites, keeping venues open and supporting those working in the sector.
Llanthony Secunda Priory has received a grant of over £45,000, which will make a huge difference to us as an independent charity. The grant will help fund essential maintenance and conservation work in the grounds and on our historic buildings and structures. Some of the grant will also be used to create a catering outlet at the back of the Brick Range, which will be developed over winter.
The grant will also support a new temporary post in the Llanthony Secunda Priory team: the ‘Marketing and Functions Administrator’ position will be advertised shortly. This post will help the team to develop its visitor and commercial offer for 2021.
As a local heritage charity this grant will help us to remain open and keep developing new events and activities for local people as well as for visitors to Gloucester.
This vital funding is from the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage and the Heritage Stimulus Fund - funded by Government and administered at arm’s length by Historic England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Both funds are part of the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund which is designed to secure the future of Britain’s museums, galleries, theatres, independent cinemas, heritage sites and music venues with emergency grants and loans.
