Press release 7 October 2014

The Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove, are proud to announce that they have been awarded a £240,000 grant through the prestigious and highly competitive Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Collecting Cultures programme. This initiative aims to ‘support museums, libraries and archives to develop their collections through strategic acquisition projects. Grantees plan and deliver programmes of targeted purchase and engage a wider range of people with their collections’. Royal Pavilion & Museums’ project, ‘Fashioning Africa’ takes its lead from the service’s outstanding collection of historic African textiles to build a new collection of post-1960s African dress.
