a place with a future

Join our team of hosts - Opening again on 1 May 2018

Can you spare a few hours during the summer months. Why not join our friendly team of hosts who help to keep the Museum open to the Public. Lots of our visitors comment on the "very friendly and informative members of staff" but we would welcome more on the team.

We wouldn't open our doors to the public without all the help of our volunteers. There are other ways behind the scenes that you can help.

Fancy giving it a try?  Training will be given. 

Contact Peter at:   bettenewydd@outlook.com or for more general information: admin@newtowntextilemuseum.co.uk

Do you have a craft you can demonstrate?

Why not share your craft with our visitors. Come along and demonstrate on a Saturday in the summer.  Contact: curator@newtowntextilemuseum.co.uk for more information. 


 why we would like you to join our Friends group

We have established a Friends Group and would like to invite you to become a member.

The Textile Museum first opened in October 1967.  A group of supporters had each pledged a guinea (remember them?!) to help get the project going. Their help was invaluable. 

50 years on we now need a new band of equally generous benefactors to secure our future. 

A modest annual or regular donation, of at least £20 (although more would always be welcome!) from our members will help to sustain the Museum for the next 50 years.

Money raised through the NTM Friends will enable us to plan ahead, secure in the knowledge that we have committed funds we can use to develop and keep the Textile Museum open.

As an NTM Friend you will receive our standard newsletter, plus special mailings of interest. We are also looking at ways of offering our Friends special activities and benefits.

All donations are handled through the MCRA (Montgomeryshire Community Regeneration Association) - the registered charity for the Newtown Textile Museum. (Charity number: 524426). All money comes direct to the Museum.

Please Gift Aid your donation if you are eligible.
