Patrons in the Gallery of Costume

We value the generous support of all our patrons and recognise what their support allows us to achieve. Support from our patrons enables us to:

  • Mount world-class temporary exhibitions
  • Care for, add to and present our significant designated collections
  • Deliver an extensive learning programme to children, young people and life long learners
  • Maintain our offer as one of the most important regional galleries in the country

Dr Susan. M. Brown, one of our Patrons, says:

“The benefits of being a Patron are innumerable. I've gained so much from becoming more involved: getting to know the Curators, obtaining valuable advice on developing my own small collection of art, participating in major exhibitions, attending wonderful opening nights and special events, enjoying "behind-the scene" visits to private London galleries, that it seemed only right to contribute to the ongoing success of this celebrated Manchester institution.

It is all the more important, in the current financial climate, that the arts continue to receive funding from private and corporate sponsors and patrons. I am a great believer in the "Manchester brand" and feel very privileged to be part of such a long-established and distinguished organisation."

We’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to our current Patrons below.
