Chiswick House & Gardens Trust has secured £109,900 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Culture Recovery Fund to help it transition back into full operation in 2022.

This is the third grant of continuity support funding that the Trust has received. It says these critical funds will used to cover operating costs to give Chiswick House & Gardens the best possible chance of returning to financial viability.

Chiswick House & Gardens Director, Xanthe Arvanitakis said, “This grant is vital, it will help cover our costs over the winter months so we can continue to develop our community and volunteer programme and plan an exciting and engaging programme in 2022 to aid our recovery”.

Nigel Huddleston, Heritage Minister, said, “I'm delighted that this vital funding from our unprecedented Culture Recovery Fund is giving so many brilliant heritage organisations a helping hand this winter. I want everyone to enjoy what our fascinating and diverse heritage has to offer and with this money we're safeguarding these organisations for generations to come.”

Chiswick House & Gardens’ commercial income has been severely affected over the past 18 months due to the ongoing pandemic. In addition to this funding, long-term recovery continues to rely on the generosity of Patrons and Members, and the individuals who volunteer their time and skills and make donations to support the organisation’s mission to be a place for everyone, every day.
