The Broomfield House Trust

Charity description

The Broomfield House Trust logo
Many of us have fond memories of times spent at Broomfield House in the past. We recall the museum exhibits, the Lanscroon murals, and enjoying tea with our friends at the café. Sadly, others have only seen the House enclosed in scaffolding, as it has remained since it was destroyed by fires over 20 years ago.

Finding the substantial capital required to restore the House in the current economic climate is not an easy task. We are pleased to report however, that there is a renewed effort to do so. Enfield Council, together with members of The Broomfield House Trust and Friends of Broomfield Park are working on a proposal to try to secure financial support from the UK Heritage Lottery Fund to restore the House, Stable Yard and Baroque Water Gardens for community use and enjoyment. Additional funding will be needed from other sources to ensure the viability of this project.

In order to be sustainable and ensure free access, we need to identify activities with long term income earning potential:

A café on the ground floor of the House providing healthy, affordable food and drinks

Room hire for community, businesses, families, parties, weddings, etc

Family events: puppet shows, craft workshops, music and movement, kid’s films

Community events: cultural events and exhibitions about our diverse community

Other events: Small classical music shows, talks, learning workshops, fitness classes

Small business units for lease in the Stable Block with shared business resources and support

Rental income from Professional Tenant in the Stable Block, e.g., voluntary sector organisation

Education Grants – pursue projects targeted at young people and linked to national curriculum

Lease of Artist Studios – create studios in stable yard for designers and artists, periodically open to public for viewing

Art Exhibitions – sales commission fees accruing to the House

Charity No: 1083078
