Guild's 10 April Meeting - Latest news on the Salisbury Museum 'Past Forward' project

Adrian Green, Salisbury Museum's Director, was the speaker at the Guild meeting in September 2021, in the early days of the Museum's 'Past Forward' project which had been awarded £3.2 millon from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The redevelopment of the museum was considered to be critical for people’s enjoyment and understanding of the city’s great stories and for the long-term protection of the King’s House and the museum.

Due to inflation, uplift grants totalling nearly £700,000 have since been awarded. Alongside this the museum is grateful to the many individuals, trusts and foundations who have contributed towards the £1.2 million needed in match funding.

Work started on site early in 2023 and Adrian will be describing the work that has taken place and the new galleries that are due to open in early summer 2024.

Members and visitors (£5) are all welcome to attend on Wednesday 10 April at 7.30 pm in the Reading Room, Stratford Road SP1 3LL. There will be a Gift Bowl in aid of Salisbury Museum.
