Would you like to deliver a project that celebrates LGBT+ history? Are you wondering how to build a strong project or where to find funding?

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) is committed to helping support projects that investigate the richness and diversity of LGBT+ history and experience. HLF has partnered with the Classic Boat Museum and the South East Museum Development Programme to offer a special twilight event.

The event is scheduled to celebrate the launch of the Classic Boat Museum’s new display in its East Cowes Gallery about the extraordinary story of Joe Carstairs, ‘the fastest woman on water.’ The Classic Boat Museum holds a wealth of information about Joe’s time on the Isle of Wight, including trophies, albums, press cutting books and many photographs and has redeveloped its displays about Joe as part of the ‘Hidden Heroes of the Isle of Wight’ partnership project, supported with public funding by Arts Council England.
