The Friends of Bruce Castle is a registered charity, and was founded in 1995 by people concerned about the future of the local authority-run Museum and its services. These concerns are just as relevant today.
As a charity, we can make bids to grant-awarding bodies for funds to help support the Museum's activities programme and to acquire items for its collections;
We help fund the weekly Family Activities and the summer events for children that the Museum organises;
We help with other Museum events and exhibitions (see this website's Events page for a partial list);
We support the monthly talks programme at the Museum;
We engage with the council on matters relating to the Museum and the Park;
We publish a quarterly newsletter, The Round Tower
We organise events for our members, such as social gatherings and outings to buildings of related interest.
Above all, we are entirely self-funded and independent of the council.
