Stronger Hereford

This scheme is part of the collective proposed projects planned for Hereford (see pdf attachment) and will establish a transformational world-class contemporary facility in the heart of Hereford with the capacity to accommodate our globally and nationally significant heritage assets such as the Magna Carta, Herefordshire Hoard and collections of antiquities dating back to the Ice Age, in addition to hosting national and international exhibitions.

The redevelopment will embrace the latest technologies such as Virtual Reality to tell the story of Herefordshire and the wider Welsh Marches region.

The new museum will aim to attract progressive funding for heritage, culture and the arts to facilitate educational and cultural activity in the city and county, to strengthen community cohesion and engagement and to support the development of job opportunities in Hereford’s cultural sector.

FUNDING 

Total Cost: £15,000,000 | Towns Fund: £5,000,000

Matched Funding: £10,000,000

Towns Fund and match-funding will support the full refurbishment of the current Broad Street Museum and Library building to EnerPHit design standards to minimise its carbon footprint.

We can't keep procrastinating with projects 'until we get our road network sorted' or quite frankly, nothing will ever get done.

The entire fabric of our society has received a serious jolt from this pandemic, and Hereford will come out the other end a different place from the one which entered it, where we will increasingly question 'what's really important' and 'what sort of place do we really want Hereford to evolve into, in years to come. For me, celebrating the history, the people, arts & culture that have made Herefordshire what it is today, through a project of this magnitude is bold and visionary. Utilising and enhancing our architectural assets to promote community cohesion and improve quality of life for local people, such as the Castle Green Pavillion scheme is also to be applauded. If projects such as these get the green light, they will leave a wonderful legacy for the next generation.
