The Friends of Leighton House

The Friends of Leighton House is a charitable organisation established over forty years ago to support and develop Leighton House Museum and 18 Stafford Terrace.

 

The Friends, formed by a Museum’s enthusiastic group of core supporters, was created in order to contribute to the preservation and enhancement of both houses, thus furthering the appreciation of Victorian art and social history and bringing them to a new generation through exciting events. The Friends have been able to contribute towards many projects and appeals for both houses. Funds raised in the past have contributed towards the purchase of significant paintings and the early development of the education programmes, among other projects. Visit the fundraising page for further information.
