Venue makes challenge of bringing in £60,000

The Musical Museum in Brentford

November 3, 2023

The Musical Museum in Brentford is in its sixtieth year of existence and has launched a fundraising drive to mark this milestone.

Started in 1963 by Frank Holland MBE it was originally known as the British Piano Museum.

The Diamond Jubilee Anniversary campaign, which begins this month, will seek donations and sponsorships as well as holding a raffle to get things started.

A new donations and legacy leaflet has been issued explaining how people can support the venue now or in the future. It has recently received a bequest from the late Miss Lilian Lewry, a former volunteer.

Steve Barrett-White – Chairman, Operations & Commercial Director, said, “Fundraising and income from grants will be vital to the survival of the Musical Museum. We are imaginative in the way we raise income and work hard to be sustainable, but we need a little help from others too.”

An easy way to donate is via the Museum’s website.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
