Isles of Scilly Museum and Cultural Centre - feasibility works

Lead Applicant: Council of the Isles of Scilly

Investment Priority: Supporting Local Business

Fund: Town, Rural and Coastal High Street Development and Skills Programme

SPF awarded: £353,032

Location: Isles of Scilly

The funding will enable architects, designers and engineers to produce the technical plans required to manufacture and construct a new museum and cultural centre for the Isles of Scilly.

The full scope of the project involves creating a high quality, welcoming and accessible Museum and Cultural Centre for the Isles of Scilly in the Grade II listed Town Hall on St Mary’s, where there is currently no permanent museum or theatre venue. The new facility will offer a versatile space for the community and become a hub for events, festivals, markets, theatre club, music, cinema and dancing.

This funding comes after previous successful awards of £173,831 from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, £440,579 from the government’s Community Renewal Fund (including £47,909 match funding from the Council of the Isles of Scilly) and £750,000 from Arts Council England’s Capital Investment Programme. With this latest award of £353,032, the total funding now secured for the project is up to £1,765,351.

The total cost of the project is expected to be around £13million.
