Lauderdale House receives £800,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund

Arts centre Lauderdale House has been awarded £800,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund towards restoration of the venue.

The money will be used towards the Lauderdale House Transformed project, which includes redeveloping an upstairs space, currently used to host cabaret performances. Hadley Fraser and Ramin Karimloo are among those who have appeared there.

The plans also include improved access points that will enable it to run events in more areas of the building at the same time, something the venue has claimed is vital to secure its future [1].

Currently, the venue only has one main door, meaning if an event is held downstairs, the rest of the space cannot be used.

Lauderdale House, in Highgate, said it still needs around £600,000 to complete the restoration.
