Donations

In order for us to succeed with the establishment of Trent Park Museum we will be relying on financial donations. If you would like to help us by making a donation to the Trust please click here.

The vision for Trent Park Museum is to create an immersive, educational experience for national and international visitors to its unique history.

The Trust is currently fundraising for the first stage of feasibility work of £20,000, including:

  • Developing the initial Business Plan – to assess the viability of the museum, and identify the income streams required for sustainability; a required in the Memorandum signed between the trust and Berkeley Homes.
  • Devising the Content Brief – to select and develop the most appropriate stories to be told (in exhibition and interpretation), the objects that will enhance these stories (via collections and loans), and the activities that will bring the stories to life (e.g. tours, talks and education projects).
  • Creating a Concept Design – to translate the Content Brief into a museum plan, using the given space most efficiently and imaginatively and capturing the essence of the house’s former life, as well as providing key information on which to shape the scope of the necessary capital works.

We would also welcome donations of any items of a historical nature relating to Trent Park – please get in touch with us via our Contact Us page if you can assist – we would be delighted to hear from you!
