Alexandra Palace & Park Placemaking & Engagement Planning

  • £18,800,000
    Total Value
  • Heritage Grant
    Funding

The iconic Alexandra Palace is an entertainment and leisure destination open to the public all year round which includes a 196 acre park, 10,000 capacity concert arena, ice skating rink and event space. Built in 1873, the Grade II listed Palace covers a total floor area of seven acres across four floors but only 50 per cent of the Palace is currently in use. We were commissioned to develop a wide-ranging Engagement and Audience Development Plan, as well as leading the consultation programme and creating the Statement of Community Involvement. This culminated into to the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s required  Activity Plan for Alexandra Palace’s Reclaiming the People’s Palace project, a £28 million refurbishment of the East Wing of the building that includes the creation of a BBC Studios Exhibition and the reopening of the Victorian theatre.

Tricolor was able to mobilise the capacity, skills and knowledge within our team to deliver the required product within a very tight timescale. As the client was not a heritage delivery organisation, we supported and mentored the project team to ensure they had the confidence and knowledge to co-produce the Activity Plan.
