We are funding the development of a new learning centre at Leighton House Museum, by donating over £45,000, as part of their major redevelopment project. Leighton House Museum is an historic house in Holland Park, and former residence of the eminent Victorian artist and collector Lord Leighton.
The learning centre will have space for up to 30 learners at a time, and will reach thousands of school students, community groups, families and adult learners each year. Visitors will be able to engage in hands-on arts and crafts, costumes and drama, story-telling and creative writing, talks and seminars, research and presentations, object-based learning, and activities which link to the garden.
The space will be equipped with state of the art multimedia capabilities, internet connectivity and interactive whiteboards. The learning centre, and the rest of the museum, aims to be open in October, once the redevelopment project is complete.
