People's Palace and Winter Gardens secures National Lottery Heritage Fund support of up to £7.5 million
A transformational project to reimagine the People's Palace and Winter Gardens in Glasgow has secured funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, that paves the way to a wider £7.5million award.
A development award of £850,000 will allow Glasgow Life to engage with more communities about the project, so every aspect is informed by their views. This investment will focus on making the building more accessible for all and improving its environmental sustainability.
This phase will take around 16 months and lead to the second stage Heritage Fund application, which will secure the remaining £6.65 million of support.
This major milestone allows the vision to restore the People's Palace and Winter Gardens as a vibrant museum and thriving community space to progress, protecting this invaluable cultural and heritage asset for generations.
