The Granville - Pugin Studios

Support our crowdfunding campaign

21 March 2023

It’s time to save Kent’s heritage and we’re doing it one step at a time! We’re starting with ‘Pugin Studios’.

The Vision for Pugin Studios

In recent decades, many of Thanet’s unique heritage assets and landmarks have fallen into disrepair and have been lost forever as community spaces. Ramsgate alone has lost dozens of iconic venues. Heritage Lab is bidding to change this and now needs YOUR help, to get its flagship project open for the public to enjoy next year.

Heritage Lab has launched a crowd funding appeal to raise a minimum £25,000 to bring the Granville back to life as a thriving community and arts hub. Thanks to a generous grant from the Architectural Heritage Fund, for every £1 given by the public, the Architectural Heritage Fund will match it, pound for pound up to a total of £25,000, helping us to hit our £50,000 target!

We now need your support towards phase 1 of the project to bring the ballroom & bars area back into community use and open a creative hub for local artists.
