Heritage Lottery Fund update

The Chamberlain Highbury Trust has for the third time failed in its bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore Highbury Hall to its former glories in a celebration of Birmingham’s first and foremost political family the Chamberlain’s, Joseph and sons Austen and Neville…….keep on keeping on, we will succeed eventually in this #BidforBirmingham

Unfortunately, for the third time, our application for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has failed. On this occasion ours was one of 47 applications, of which only 7 were successful.The HLF had just £16 million to distribute amongst these applicants at its Board meeting in December; the sum of all the applications amounted to £123 million!

As Joseph Chamberlain himself said, “If we fail, let us try again and again until we succeed.”

The trustees are setting aside a day in January to consider a range of alternative options for taking the project forward.We’ll keep you updated….
