We are delighted to announce that the De La Warr Pavilion has been awarded £109.5k in from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF).

This significant grant, from NLHF’s Heritage Emergency Fund, will support the Pavilion to recover after four months of closure due to Covid-19. This includes addressing some immediate repairs and improvements that were delayed by the closure. We will replace the floor in the Café Bar and improve the lighting – measures that will create a smarter and more welcoming space for our visitors. The automatic front doors, which have been broken for some time, will also be repaired.

In addition, this grant will support the organisation during the uncertainty of the months ahead and allow us to review and reset future plans in the light of the challenges of the pandemic.

We are grateful for the continued support of NLHF and, as a Grade I Listed heritage building, look forward to working with them on the preservation and future development of the Pavilion.
