Become a Friend
The Friends of Gainsborough’s House support this unique museum through becoming Supporters of Gainsborough’s House Society. The Friends organise a lively programme of special events, gallery talks and museum visits. You will be invited to Private Views and will receive regular information on all Friends and House activities. As Supporters, Friends can visit at any time free of charge during opening hours and the charming garden. The Friends patron, Maggi Hambling, is a major British artist whose work can be seen in important public and private collections. True to her Suffolk roots, her recent sculpture at Aldeburgh commemorates Benjamin Britten and her seascapes emphasise her artistic relationship with the county. Gainsborough’s House is proud to enjoy the patronage of an artist with such special links to Sudbury.
For a small charity with big ambitions, the support given by Friends is invaluable at meeting the running costs of the museum. Please consider becoming a Friend by Direct Debit, to reduce our administration costs.
