Welcome to St Mary's in the Market Square

We have closed for re-development

Our capital development project will completely revamp the first floor museum to better cater for schools, visitors and the arts including artists, dance and drama groups. This will include improved lift access to allow all user groups to access the facilities and creating a multi-use cultural facility. Key elements will include a vibrant modern museum with flexible and innovative use of space, photographic archive area, gallery, an adaptive multi-use performance area with seating for up to eighty people,  access to the digital Local records, along with office and storage areas. This will allow us to offer enhanced education programmes, interactive activities to encourage people to engage with their local heritage, visual arts and other activities.

Our Mission Statement to reflect our new vision is:

To make St Mary’s the beating cultural heart of the community, building aspirations and skills through engagement with the City’s vibrant history and the arts

The revitalisation project will in addition to the capital development programme require a major investment in the museum’s galleries and exhibitions and a major development of the museum’s curatorial, education and learning programmes, alongside audience development, volunteering and fundraising activity. This will help make Lichfield and the surrounding district a better place to live and encourage visitors both to the town and museum and in doing so contribute to the local economy and peoples understanding of their past. Our Fundraising appeal is well underway and a gift whether large or small would be very welcome
