Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact to register your interest.

Museums Commemorating WW1

Thursday 27th April 2017

11 November 2018 will be the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, and the formal end of fighting in World War 1. Are you interested in running an event or a project to mark the occasion? Or would you like to take this opportunity to improve access to your WW1 collections?

If so, join us for an afternoon of discussion and presentations to spark your imagination, plan your project and get support from the Heritage Lottery Fund towards making a funding application to help with the costs.

The event is designed to help eligible groups and organisations make successful applications to 'First World War: then and now' grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Find out more abut the funding by clicking here.
