The National Art Fund

The National Art Fund

About a month or so back, I was contacted by the National Art Fund, which is a national charity that raises money to buy art, fund museums and well, basically do a lot for art culture in the UK. I was offered a year’s Art Fund pass for free in exchange that I blog about my experiences using the card, which allows for discounts and free entry into galleries and museums across the country. I of course said yes, as the art fund is something I believe in supporting and of course, would actually happily use as well. The card itself is available to purchase here and for £53 per annum (or less if you purchase by direct debit) is definitely worth it if you love to visit galleries and museums and would pay for itself and of course, it’s in support of a worthy and important cause.

Unfortunately it came today, so a bit too late for me to use when I was in London last week. But luckily, it’s valid in all sorts of places up here in the North West as well, including Lyme Park which is practically in my back garden, so there will be plenty of opportunity to use it. Infact, when I was down London last week, in the V&A, I noticed several pieces in the exhibition I was visiting (The Treasures of the Royal Courts: Tudors, Stuarts and the Russian Tsars), were made available thanks to the Art Fund. It was great to see these pieces that would otherwise be unavailable or less likely to be shown if it wasn’t for this great charity.

Thus, I look forward to using my card soon and sharing my experiences with you.
