The Friends of The Trowbridge Museum was established in 1990 when Trowbridge Museum opened, with the aim of support the Museum by providing financial and volunteer assistance. We are a registered charity (no. 1054720) and submit an annual statement to the Charity Commission. We have an elected committee with a chairperson and elected officers and co-opted members. One of our main roles is to manage and staff the museum shop, using the profits to help fund purchases, conservation and events. Membership is open to anyone and costs £5 for an individual, £8 for a couple and £10 for an organisation. You can download a membership form here.
From the outset we have published pamphlets (known as the pink and yellow books) and booklets detailing various aspects of Trowbridge’s history that are available to purchase in the Museum shop.
Please note that the Museum has now closed for the expansion and will re-open in 2020. Meanwhile, The Friends can be found promoting the Trowbridge Museum in the Community Hub in the Shires Shopping Mall, and will be assisting in educational activities and events.
