Norman Cross straw work portrait donated by the Friends

Museum Friends

‘Friends of Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery’ organise events and activities including lunchtime lectures and a newsletter, ‘Musings’.

These events and activities help promote the work of the Museum, and help raise funds to buy new items for the collections. The most recent acquisitions to the collections include a Norman Cross portrait and a manuscript written by John Clare. The money was raised with proceeds from the Martin Howe Lecture, an annual event organised by the Museum Friends.

The Friends monthly lunchtime lectures (including buffet lunch) are open to all, and cover subjects of historical, local or general interest. They take place on the third Thursday of each month, beginning at 12:30pm in the Howe Room of Peterborough Musuem (Priestgate, Peterborough, PE1 1LF).

Entrance is £4 for members, £5 for non-members.
