Get involved with Hidden Gem to National Treasure


The generous contribution from the Friends of Leighton House has allowed construction work to start but they still need your help!


The Friends continue to fundraise for essential conservation work to be carried out to the permanent collection, the presentation of the new displays, the redesigning and replanting of the Museum's unique garden and the fit out of the new learning space.


Your donation will ensure that everyone has access to the new Leighton House Museum and enjoy its collections at its best, now and for generations to come.

DONATE ONLINE: there are many opportunities to support the project, from sponsoring specific objects to helping our upcoming programmes. See below how your donation can make a difference:


£50 could get our volunteer gardeners a batch of seeds to use in the replanting of the House’s garden, damaged by the construction works

£200 would buy a new garden bench, from which you could enjoy a coffee from our new café under Leighton’s Winter Studio

£470 would enable us to buy a paper plan chest for our learning space, in need of a complete fit-out

£1,100 would purchase a new Blue Indian peacock to replace our beloved ‘Percy’, who sits atop the chest in the Narcissus Hall and is looking a little worse for wear

£1,770 would help restore our collection of William De Morgan ceramics, never displayed before, to be ready to be shown in the new galleries
