Heritage Lottery Fund grant for Normansfield Theatre

3rd July 2015

The Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) has received £85,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for its exciting project: ‘Normansfield – Protecting a Theatrical Past’. The HLF’s grant means that vital building works can begin to protect the rare, Victorian Grade II* listed theatre and its remarkable collection of original, hand painted scenery. The scenery, which has no equal anywhere else in Britain, is extraordinarily complete with more than 80 flats, 18 borders, 5 painted cloths and many individual pieces. The funding will also allow the creation of a fully catalogued, digital archive of the Victorian scenery to create a ‘virtual theatre’ which will be available at the centre and on-line. The ‘virtual theatre’ will enable a schools and further education programme to explore this important collection. It will also be accessible to members of the public to learn more about the fascinating life of this beautiful theatre.
