Keeping arts and culture at the heart of our communities

Creating a major cultural hub and venue


Plymouth City Council

The Box is a major scheme in the heart of Plymouth and a symbol for Plymouth’s current regeneration. Plymouth’s new cultural and art attraction is transforming the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, former Central Library and St Luke’s Church buildings into a major cultural and heritage venue. Led by Plymouth City Council, The Box is a partnership with the University of Plymouth and the National Museum of the Royal Navy. Major funding for the project has been secured from the City Council, a £14.8 million National Lottery grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), Arts Council England, Coastal Communities Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation, University of Plymouth, Wolfson Foundation, Interreg and Mayflower 400.
