|Friends of Lancaster City Museum|
To King's Own Royal Regiment Museum
Friends of Lancaster City Museum was founded in 2000 to support both the
City Museum and King's Own Royal Regiment Museum.
Since its foundation the Friends have supported conservation work, promoted the museum and have assisted in the purchase of acquisitions. In 2014 the Friends assisted in the purchase of an Edward Medal associated with the 1917 White Lund Explosion. In 2016 a Friends project with funds from the Heritage Lottery Fund allowed the Recommsioned project to be run, bringing in schools to the 141 Days, The Battle of the Somme Exhibition, and also meaning the museum was part of the annual Light Up Lancaster festival.
The Friends support the monthly talks programme at the City Museum.
In 2017 the Friends have again been successful with an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund which will see the Blasted project Commemorating the Centenary of the White Lund Explosion in the autumn of 2017, again meaning the museum will be part of the annual Light Up Lancaster festival.
Individual membership costs only £10. Family membership £16, youth and student membership £5 is also available.
