The Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library is proposing a major facelift. So far £3.7 million is in place and support and development funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England. The next stage is a £4.5 million application in November 2020. A further £2.3 million will come from donations.
The plan includes making better space for local artists and events and families. Creating ‘blended’ art, museum, book exhibitions. Changing the library. Moving the cafe and shop and opening new doors for access to the building. A lift will be installed in the south east corner.
