Heritage Projects

To add to its 80th anniversary celebrations, Kingsley Hall in Bromley by Bow was awarded a grant of £49,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a year-long project, Kingsley Hall and the Legacy of Muriel Lester. This helped preserve the Muriel Lester Archive, making it accessible to everybody, and so gain wider recognition for the achievements of the two Kingsley Halls’ founders, Muriel and her sister Doris.

Activities within the project included:

As part of its buildings development, Kingsley Hall in Dagenham had a heritage project in 2018
