The Friends of The Johnston Collection

The Friends of the Johnston Collection first met in May 1999 and the inaugural Annual General Meeting was held in August of that year. The group has quickly become an integral and important part of The Johnston Collection. Some members of the Friends support the work of the house and Collection in practical ways - raising funds for new acquisitions and assisting with  research and the management of the Collection. The Committee also organizes special outings and events, which are usually enlightening and always social and enjoyable. Events are held both during the day and evenings.

Apart from being associated with a very special Collection and meeting new people with similar interests, your membership will give you:

  • An opportunity to attend events including visits to private collections organized exclusively for The Friends members
  • Notice of events held at The Johnston Collection
  • Special admission rate to the "Highlights Tour"
  • The Friends newsletter
  • Information about the Volunteer Program at The Johnston Collection

Your $60 ($110 for couples) Membership also gives you the opportunity to:

  • Enjoy social events with like minded people
  • Make new friends
  • Visit private and public collections
  • Become involved in assisting in the care of an important historic property and a superb Collection

Forthcoming Events

We look forward to your involvement in the upcoming events conducted by The Friends of The Johnston Collection.

These events have three aims: to develop a convivial social programme that brings together individuals with similar interests in the arts; to provide access to events, specialists, locations and homes that may not be normally available to the public; and to assist with support of the Collection.

We welcome members to join the following Friends lectures and events:
