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.
