About Us

The Friends of Tunbridge Wells Museum, Library and Art Gallery play an important role in promoting the Museum and Library services, collections and activities by raising funds, volunteering and lending support. By becoming a Friend you will be helping to maintain the high standards of this valuable local resource and promote its future development.

We hold regular fund raising events such as our annual quiz night and our Day at the Wells event. Members are able to attend exclusive talks, gain unprecedented access to new exhibitions and go on unique insider tours to cultural and heritage venues. They are greatly enjoyed by members for their social and educational aspects while also raising money to contribute towards this important set of local institutions.

The money raised through membership and events allows the Friends to contribute in a variety of ways. Such as providing prizes for reading challenges to purchasing a new display cabinet to show the museums fantastic collections. Becoming a member of the Friends will allow an individual to enhance one of our boroughs important educational, cultural and heritage resources.
