Friends of The Lightbox are so important to us. They provide regular support for our work in all kinds of ways and in return we offer special benefits and opportunities to get involved. A regular programme of events especially for Friends is a sociable, fun way to meet other people while knowing that you are helping to keep this very special organisation flourishing.

Friends help to:

  • Support and enhance the work of one of the finest galleries in the South East
  • Fund the development of the education and lifelong learning programmes for the benefit of the widest possible audience


In return for supporting your local gallery and museum you will receive:
