RAF Museum secures HLF award for centenary programme

The RAF Museum has been awarded £4,595,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the next phase of its RAF Centenary Programme expansion.

The money will enable the attraction to deliver a series of significant changes to its Hendon site in 2018. Two innovative exhibitions will explore the first 100 years of the RAF through the stories of its people and invite visitors to envisage its future contribution and technology.
A new visitor centre will be established featuring “clear orientation and flexible-use spaces”, plus a café and shop. A new restaurant will also be created, revitalising a disused historic building. Through ‘RAF Stories’, a digital project, people will also contribute personal stories to add a varied focus on RAF heritage. These will be showcased both on site and online.
The first phase of its redevelopment, the HLF-supported ‘First World War in the Air’ exhibition, opened to public acclaim in December 2014, winning Best Heritage Project in last year’s National Lottery Awards.
