The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has granted the RAF Museum £1,783,700 of funding for Phase 2b (Historic Hendon) of its RAF Centenary Programme.2018 marks the Centenary of the Royal Air Force and the award-winning RAF Museum will celebrate and commemorate this anniversary through a multi-million pound transformation of our visitor experience, telling the RAF story on site and online.Phase 2b of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme, ‘Historic Hendon’, focuses on sharing the historical significance of the Museum’s London site as the London Aerodrome in the early 20th century and later RAF Hendon. Drawing on archive and collection artefacts, the Museum will work with local volunteers to research and develop interpretation and activities that reference the site’s unique airfield heritage. Thanks to National Lottery players, the landscape at the heart of the site will be transformed to create a ‘sense of place’ linked to that heritage. The project will also deliver inspiring outdoor play and picnic spaces, creating a new village green for both the Museum’s local communities and other visitors. Phase 2b of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme complements the work of Phase 2a which recently received Heritage Lottery funding of £4.9m. It will ensure that the Museum’s London site shares the RAF story in an inclusive, reflective, engaging and exciting way for all our visitors to mark this important national anniversary.Maggie Appleton, CEO of the Royal Air Force Museum, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the support they have given us. Our collection is all the more significant because the RAF Museum London stands on an historic site – one which is woven into the narrative of British Aviation. It’s therefore wonderful that we have this opportunity to restore, recreate and share the stories of our fabulous heritage.” Sir Peter Luff, Chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund said: “The foundation of the Royal Air Force is an enduring and important legacy of the First World War and it is thanks to National Lottery players that the HLF can support the RAF Museum’s plans for this centenary. This latest project will help tell the story of the historic London site, and continue the transformation of the experience of visitors to this excellent museum”. This award brings the Museum even closer to its overall fundraising target, with under £7m now left to raise.
