Friends of the Ferens

If you’re a fan of Ferens Art Gallery, why not join Friends of the Ferens?

With over 675 members (and growing), this special organisation helps us bring world-class collections and exhibitions to Hull. While members get a few perks of their own.

For just £10 a year, members receive:

  • invitations to social events, talks and visits – including members-only previews
  • a special newsletter (choose from print or email)
  • regular updates on exhibitions and art-related events in and around Hull
  • a 10% discount on purchases in the gallery shop and café

We also have an Adopt a Painting scheme, where you can contribute to the restoration and contribution of key paintings in our collection. The latest being Arthur Hacker’s Miss Ivy Lilian Close (1890–1968).

And of course, donations above £10 are always very welcome. Every donation helps us to keep Ferens Art Gallery free for everyone to enjoy.

As well as supporting our programme of exhibitions, Friends of the Ferens also helps us to grow and care for our permanent collections, through new purchases, special projects and conservation works.
