Gallery’s Friends celebrate 50 years!

15 Aug 2022

Established in 1971, the Friends of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery have been the membership organisation of the Gallery for over 50 years.

This milestone was celebrated in fabulous Friends style at the Gallery in June with the Fabulous Friends 50th. 

As the photos will attest, the event was a great night of catching up with Friends old and new, and celebrating the long relationship with the Gallery.

Here’s to 50 more – join the Friends now, to play a part in the next chapter of the Friends’ story!
