Support us

Holst Victorian House is a charity. We’re entirely independent and rely on income from visitors and the support of our Donors, Friends and Volunteers to keep the museum open.

Become a Friend, or renew your membership

We couldn’t keep the Museum open without the support of the Friends of Holst Victorian House.

Our Friends’ annual subscriptions are a vital source of funding for us. They help us to pay our day-to-day bills as well as the staff who care for our collection and ensure that our Grade II listed house is kept safe and well-maintained.

If you’d like to help us keep this wonderful house open, please do consider joining us as a Friend. In return you’ll receive:

– Free admission to the museum during normal opening hours
– Regular email updates about forthcoming events and exhibitions
– The Holst House Journal, by post or email

You’ll also become a member of the Holst Birthplace Trust, with the opportunity to attend and vote at our AGM.

Offer your time as a volunteer

Our team of volunteers are an integral part of Holst Victorian House. As a charitable trust we rely on their work to help sustain the Museum for future generations. And there’s always a warm welcome for another pair of helping hands.

Visit our volunteers page for more information about how you can contribute your time to help the Museum. We look forward to meeting you.

Leave us a legacy

It’s a difficult thing to ask, but some of the most incredible things we’ve achieved as a charity have been the result of legacy gifts.
