To succeed in its mission, the Trust relies upon the generous support of its valued donors and loyal Friends who share its commitment to increasing access to the arts.  We are indebted to those who support the Trust’s work.

As a Friend your invaluable support will go directly towards helping fund the:

  • Trust’s learning programme which encourages people of all ages to explore their creativity.
  • Conservation of Sidney’s works of art held by the Trust and making them accessible through a programme of temporary exhibitions.
  • Archiving Sidney’s enormous personal legacy of books, letters, photographs and film as a resource for researchers.
  • Upkeep of the beautiful medieval farm, including the Grade II* listed Jacobean manor house, Rodd Court (Sidney’s former home), and its gardens and grounds.
