Pen Museum – £25,482 Grant

More than £300 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country including The Pen Museum in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund.

The Pen Museum celebrates Birmingham’s unique place as the world centre for steel pen manufacturing in the later 19th century/early 20th Century and the grant received will not only help secure their survival but help us prepare for our reopening.

Andy Munro Chair of Trustees, states: “The Pen Museum Trustees and Volunteers are grateful for the continued support from the Arts Council and the Government Cultural Recovery Fund. It will help with our work towards re-opening and welcoming visitors again. Taking its place in the important cultural life and heritage of Birmingham.

The funds are lifeline and support the important work of improving visitor experience, digitising the collections for better access and social history projects opening up new learning around the women and children that worked in the Pen Industry during 19th century.”
