Client: Fulham Palace Trust

• Fulham Palace is an independent charitable trust whose vision is to “To engage people and provide an insight, through the stories of the Bishops of London, into over 1300 years of English history, and to become one of Great Britain’s most loved and inspiring historic houses and gardens”.

Project

• The £3.5m project includes restoration of the quadrangle, installation of site-wide interpretation, new exhibitions, a community archaeology project and other community learning activities together with a greater range of volunteering and heritage training opportunities.

How we helped

• Working with Alix Slater Consulting and Training Ltd we provided a comprehensive package of support including a Marketing Audit, Marketing Plan and Business Plan
• We reviewed the existing interpretation and developed a new Interpretation Plan to reflect the site’s 1300 years of history.
• We researched and consulted on a wide rangeing Activity Plan to support support the successful HLF Round 2 application for £1.9 million.
• The Business Plan will also be used as the Trust’s Business Plan from 2017 to 2022 and has included a wider review of the operations of the site including the on-site café, functions’ business and retail to ensure the long-term sustainability of the historic buildings and gardens.
