Pay for a Day

When we closed the museum in March we immediately lost 46% of our income. Even when we are not open, it still costs £106 a day to run our incredible building, without including any staff costs. This unavoidable expenditure is essential to protect our important Accredited collection, 365 days a year.

Since July, we have had to limit bookings to just 30% of our usual capacity. Of course this is essential for the safety of our staff and visitors, however it means we are still facing serious financial challenges. With the news of another lockdown we are again in need of your generous support.

So, we are asking – can you pay for a day? A one off or regular donation of £106 will make a monumental difference to us at this incredibly challenging time.

We are asking for your help to survive.

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft is a charity and we receive no regular funding. We work hard to raise every penny needed to run the museum and our programmes.  Although we are making use of the government’s support schemes we have been faced with a significant shortfall. We cannot survive this difficult period without your help, so if you can please consider making a donation of £106 to pay for a day.

Please help secure the future of Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft. We are enormously grateful for your support.
