Kielder Observatory is now open for events


Kielder Observatory receives funding from the National Lottery Heritage Cultural Recovery Fund


We were delighted to be awarded £23,300 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund Cultural Recovery Fund. This was a welcome investment in maintaining our core team, upgrading our observatory buildings and keeping them COVID-secure for visitors. We were one of over 470 organisations to receive funding, which came from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and was designed to support heritage recover from the impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19) and it built on more than £146m delivered to the sector in the first round of the Culture Recovery Fund, which included funding for revenue and capital works.
