£3.3million to transform Lambeth's Brockwell Hall
Part of an overarching £6.3million investment, the 'Restoration of Brockwell Hall - Letting the Past Enhance the Future' project is run by Lambeth Council in partnership with Brockwell Park Community Partners.
Thanks to National Lottery players, the project will enable the site to be used for community events and activities, weddings and corporate bookings, food and drink, exhibitions and more.
We are thrilled to support Lambeth Council in restoring the important Grade II* listed manor house Brockwell Hall. At the heart of the Brockwell Park community since 1813, a substantial grant of over £3million will help restore the hall’s architecture, celebrate its history, and open it up to greater public access.

A new café and flexible community exhibition space will celebrate the history of the hall and provide opportunity for local groups and artists to showcase their work and vision.
And a new events space for up to 200 people will be created by building a permanent roof between the hall and the stables and coach house buildings. The venue will support a range of community and commercial activities.
Opening up access
Visitors to the hall will benefit from new landscaping and stairs. An accessible path to the main entrance will be put in place, along with a new indoor lift to the basement and first floor.
A volunteer hub will be set up in the basement with its own entrance, with more rooms opened up for community use.
There will also be dedicated Brockwell Hall staff, including business administration and cultural interpretation apprenticeships.
“Real benefits for local people”
Cllr Sonia Winifred, Cabinet Member for Equalities and Culture, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to work with The National Lottery Heritage Fund, our residents and stakeholders on this exciting project. It will bring new life to an underused, overlooked heritage building, with the project plans delivering real benefits for local people.”
Stuart McLeod, Director London & South at The National Lottery Heritage Fund, said: “We are thrilled to support Lambeth Council in restoring the important Grade II* listed manor house Brockwell Hall.

Work on the hall will start in winter 2021 and it will open to the public in spring 2023.
