The Bowes Museum > Friends > Join the Friends


In addition, there are many opportunities for Friends to meet and become more involved through helping at events, joining mailing teams (these are large, busy occasions as over 2,000 Friends are mailed quarterly) and volunteering in a number of different capacities.

Please note that the Friends' office is run by volunteers and is not continually staffed, so voicemail messages can only be dealt with at intervals. Emails are picked up daily, however.

Sorry something went wrong, please try again.

The Bowes Museum is closed!

All of us at The Bowes Museum are really sad to announce that we have had to close until Wednesday 2 December in line with new national restrictions.

As a result, we have been forced to cancel events that were due to take place during this time. If you have a ticket for an event or entry to the Museum before this date, you will be contacted to arrange a refund or to make an alternative booking. All Christmas activities including the Christmas Market and Santa’s Grotto are expected to go ahead as planned.

Happily, we are still able to welcome walkers and cyclists to the Park and Gardens as usual, including the Playground area, and cars will be admitted between 10.00 and 4.00 daily.

We have so loved welcoming people into the building again, safely enjoying our displays, eating in Café Bowes and browsing in our shop, so please in the meantime keep safe and we hope to see you back again soon.
