Who We Are

The Friends of Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery was founded in 1982 to help in promoting and supporting the Museum.

We raise funds to expand the collection with purchases of, for example, a 16th Century icon, a set of local tobacco jars, and sculptures and paintings by local artists.

We help with the restoration of paintings and other exhibits and assist with funds for building work.

We also act as ambassadors for the Museum, acting independently in their interests, spreading the word and encouraging people to visit.

We have a lively programme of events, including lectures (free to members), fund raising events, day trips and longer visits to historic sites, exhibitions and other collections.

Members also receive a newsletter, Tela, twice a year which contains general articles as well as more specific Friends related material.

We are members of The British Association of Friends of Museums.
