Event Details

Leicester Cicic Society are supporting the Goddard roof appeal by holding their exhibition at the ISKCON building
ISKCON is open every day from 6th-9th October

Help us to save this 150 year old, iconic Victorian Grade II* building in the heart of England! This roof will not last another winter! The building is instrumental to a range of community activities.

Our building was designed by the great Victorian architect, Joseph Goddard. This roof restoration project will achieve the following: Community Services: our centre attracts almost 30,000 people annually from very diverse backgrounds. We are planning to expand as a hub for business, cultural and social events and by doing so we are liberating this unique building for community use. Heritage: By repairing the roof we will be able to preserve the heritage value of this building. It will also give us the opportunity to showcase the invaluable works of Joseph Goddard to the public. Having consulted with the local community, Heritage Open Days, the local Civic and Victorian Societies, Historic England and other stakeholders, it is evident that there is real interest in the project Environmental: as part of our contribution to the environment, Photovoltaic glass will be replacing the old roof glass, generating electricity that will sustain the entire building with green energy.
