Due to structural issues in John Harvey House, the building has been put on Historic England’s Heritage At Risk register, and therefore we will only be opening the ground floor in 2022.

We are planning a year of fantastic workshops, talks and events as well as re-opening the brilliant ’24 Foundry Square’ exhibition. Going on the HAR has accelerated our long-term plans to expand and rejuvenate the centre. We are working behind-the-scenes to develop a new and improved Heritage Centre for Hayle. We will be updating our website with project progress so watch this space!
