Nottingham’s Bromley House Library’s double funding success

Bromley House Library on Angel Row, known as Nottingham’s cultural ‘hidden gem’, has received two significant grants from public funding bodies to help explore a possible expansion.

The National Heritage Lottery Fund has granted the historic library up to £60,000 to fund a comprehensive Feasibility Study, and the Architectural Heritage Fund is giving £10,000 for physical surveys and reports.

The grants will enable Bromley House Library, which has been in its Grade II* listed building near Nottingham’s Old Market Square for over two hundred years, to make an informed judgement about the expansion project.

If the studies and surveys conclude that there is good potential, the Library will carry out further fundraising for the scheme.

The ambitious plans include installation of a lift to enable access to all floors of Bromley House and its walled garden, more space for public engagement in literary and heritage activities, and rentable offices for other cultural organisations.

Clare Brown, Library Director, said,

“We couldn’t have wished for a better start to the year. Bromley House Library already serves many of Nottingham’s readers and writers but we have more to offer.

“The opportunity to share our books and our heritage with a wider range of people is hugely exciting.”
