Join the Friends

What do the Friends do?

The Friends organise events throughout the year to raise funds for The Vale & Downland Museum. Activities include second-hand book sales, outings, talks and other fundraising events.

Where do the funds go?

The funds raised by the Friends go towards:

  • research and design of new museum displays and exhibitions
  • purchase of important artefacts which would otherwise be lost
  • equipment to help with the running of the museum

What’s in it for me?

As well as helping the museum, Friends get the opportunity to:

  • Learn more about the local area
  • Make new friends
  • Buy discounted tickets for trips, talks and other organised events
  • Access the photographic and library collections for research (by prior arrangement)
