now made thanks to The Friends, grants from other bodies and donations. To date the Friends have raised over £45,000 to help with acquisitions and match-funding for grant applications.
Other activities organised by The Friends, called the Facets programme, include an annual series of lectures on glass-related topics by guest speakers, visits to glass factories and studios, talks on major exhibitions at the Museum, providing refreshment facilities at events, and a Christmas party. These events provide opportunities for fund-raising, learning and, of course, enjoyment.
The Friends of Broadfield House Glass Museum have their own website.
