"Thanks for the brilliant programme of lectures and events and the warm welcome of all the Friends and Gallery staff. I have gained a much deeper understanding of the Gallery and its amazing Collection. It has also been a fascinating insight into the contemporary art world and some of the dedicated, professional work behind the scenes."
Paul Brotherton, Best Friend
You don’t have to know a lot about art to enjoy being a Friend. Or you may have an interest you’d like to explore in a bit more depth.
For a little more each month, becoming a Best Friend gives you extra benefits that will bring you closer to the heart of the gallery.
All the benefits of a Friend plus:
You can join our Friends scheme online or pay your subscription by cheque or by Direct Debit. Paying by Direct Debit costs less than if you pay by cheque because it generates less administration – your membership simply keeps going until you stop it, rather than us having to send you renewal letters.
You can join as an individual, or you can take out a joint membership with someone living at the same address.
For an extra £2 you can also buy a year-long discount which entitles you to a 20% discount in our shop and a 10% discount in our cafe.
|Cheque or Card|
