Become a Patron of Watts Gallery Trust

Our Patrons scheme is for those who wish to give significant support to protect the Watts Gallery - Artists' Village Collection, a collection of national importance, for future generations to enjoy.

As a Patron, you will be investing in the Artists' Village's exciting education and conservation programmes and ensuring that our founders' vision that art should be accessible to all carries on today and for future generations.

Patrons are invited to make an annual gift of £500 or more. Gold Patrons, who make an annual gift of £1,000 or more, receive additional benefits. Patrons may join as a couple or as an individual.

Patrons' benefits include

  • Exclusive invitations to special events and tours
  • Free entry to the Artists' Village permanent collection and temporary exhibitions
  • A complimentary copy of any exhibition catalogues
  • Watts Magazine delivered to your door three times a year
  • A Physical Energy lapel pin
  • Gold Patrons also receive copies of new Artists' Village publications and a set of Watts Gallery - Artists' Village Christmas cards each year


  • Enjoy exclusive private viewings and be amongst the first to see temporary exhibitions, hosted by the Director and/or Curator
  • Get a one-on-one tour of the Artist in Residence studio for a 'behind the scenes' look
  • Get a sneak peak at a private collection not on display to the general public
  • Enjoy an exclusive programme of expert-led talks, concerts and practical art classes.

(Please note you may be required to purchase tickets to these and some other Patrons events.)
