The Soane Patrons’ Circle is a friendly, eclectic group of people who care about the Museum.

Our Patrons’ generosity allows us to continue our work, such as supporting our learning and exhibition programmes and conserving our unique collection of paintings, drawings, sculpture, furniture and architectural fragments.

As a Patron, you gain access to an exclusive programme of sociable and stimulating events, both at the Soane and at other venues. 

Events include personal, private tours of the Museum led by the Director; private views of exhibitions introduced by their curators; talks and concerts for Patrons and their guests; and visits to private houses and collections not open to the public.

You’ll also receive complimentary copies of museum publications and regular news and updates.

Become a Patron for an annual donation of £1,500 – made up of a £500 subscription and a charitable gift of £1,000. Membership is restricted to no more than 250 individuals worldwide.
