For the Love of Russell-Cotes

Do you love the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum? Do you linger in the quirky historic rooms wanting to know more about some of the artefacts, or wish to hear about our upcoming temporary exhibitions and events before anyone else? Join the Friends of the Russell-Cotes and shout your support from the (turreted) rooftops. We want to build on the relationships we have with our loyal visitors, allowing you to engage more with the house and its collections, and to let us know what you want to see from your cultural heritage. With just a little financial support, we are able to care for the collections, improve interpretation, and deliver stunning exhibitions and other public programmes.

In return for this support you will  receive unlimited admission for twelve months, a bi-monthly email newsletter which will contain information on art and artefacts, conservation news, Russell-Cotes facts and history and information about new acquisitions, as well as upcoming events. You will also be invited to a free, exclusive Friends event and exhibition Private Views, and will be notified of priority booking for talks and events.

Above all, you will be able to enjoy the knowledge that your contribution is helping to maintain and display the house and its collections as Merton and Annie Russell-Cotes intended.

Prices are:

Friend £25 (one adult member)

Joint Friend £40 (two adults at the same address)

Family Friend £45 (two adults plus children at the same address)

To become a Friend, or to purchase as a gift, please visit the Welcome Desk or ring 01202 451820. Alternatively you can pay online here.
