Hampshire Cultural Trust are leading on the £1.5m redevelopment of the Old Grammar School which currently houses Gosport Gallery, the Play Gallery and hands-on education centre, SEARCH.
Creating a new arts venue at the centre of Gosport’s HSHAZ, the redevelopment of this Grade II listed building will provide an inspiring multi-purpose destination for Gosport residents and visitors. It will transform into a vibrant community hub with a new museum, studio and workshop spaces, a café, craft shop and education programme.
The building is now closed to the public to allow redevelopment work to begin and will re-open in summer 2022 as Gosport Museum and Art Gallery.
Where are we now?
Planning permission and listed building consent for the redevelopment work were approved in July 2021. Contracts to deliver the works were agreed in December 2021 with works starting on site in early 2022.
