The Holst Birthplace Museum suffered an ingress of water during torrential downpours in June 2016. This caused severe damage to three of the Museum’s period room settings and damage to another. There was also water damage to a small part of the collection which has been removed for conservation. During this period, the Museum remains closed for drying out, repairs and conservation.
Although much of the refurbishment is covered by insurance, we need to fundraise an additional £30,000, for repairs and costs not covered by insurance.
Our ‘Help Holst’ campaign will enable us to undertake vital works to the building’s pipe work. This will protect the collections from threat and enable us re-open our beautiful Museum once again.
