Our long-term and successful work with Hall for Cornwall has helped this key cultural organisation secure £5 million from the Arts Council England's Capital Programme, £3 million from Cornwall Council, £2m from ERDF and £2m from HM Treasury, and £2.8m from the Heritage Lottery Fund towards a total project budget of £19.8m. Cornwall Council, who see this as one of their cultural flagship projects are providing significant funding. We wrote the business plans for the successful Stage 2 Arts Council England application and the recently approved Round Two bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. This is an important first step in an ambitious project to create state-of-the-art updated facilities, whilst respecting the heritage of HFC's home inside Truro's City Hall, a building which has been at the centre of Truro's social and political life since 1846.
HFC is a thriving theatre in the heart of Truro, staging a range of performances and attracting nearly 200,000 visitors a year. The funding awards from a range of important funders recognise that HFC makes a significant contribution to Cornwall's economy and is a regionally important cultural hub. The proposed capital investment will provide HfC with the best possible conditions to grow their cultural and economic contribution to the area.
As lead consultants for HFC, our work has included carrying out heritage lottery fund work, a feasibility study, appraising various options, and compiling a compelling business plan for the refurbishment of Cornwall's major performance venue.
"I adore working with Perfect Moment, they go the extra mile. John Lancaster has been a tremendous support on projects that we've been planning." Julien Boast Director at Hall for Cornwall.
