Objectives

The Isles of Scilly Cultural Centre and Museum – The Town Hall – will be a high quality, welcoming and friendly place that draws people in and encourages them to return. It will inspire and provide opportunities for those who live and work on the islands, those who visit the islands, and all those who want to learn about and engage with the islands’ people, history and culture.

Activities

We will create a warm and welcoming venue in the heart of St Mary’s, a place for local people and holidaymakers alike to come together. The space will:

  • become a new home for our museum, celebrating the culture and stories of Scilly and shining a light on our rich heritage.

  • provide a performance and exhibition space for local artists and performers, as well as touring companies – creating a much-needed indoor venue for cinema, theatre and live music performances.

  • act as an Island Hall for our local community, providing a space for people to gather – whether for a craft fair or community group, a dance or a family celebration. 

The building will be a celebration of the beautiful natural landscape and distinctive architecture of the Isles of Scilly and will meet the highest standards of environmental sustainability.
