Love without wings


Help us to protect and preserve Newstead Abbey for future generations. We have many ways you can help and support our Nottingham Museums.



Make a one-off donation and help us acquire new pieces for our collections. Donations contribute to ongoing conservation and research projects to further the community and education.


Gift us in your will

Such acts of personal generosity are invaluable support, benefiting future generations. Any gift made in your will can reflect a personal interest or passion and ensure it is directed to benefit a specific area within Nottingham Museums’ body of work.

Donate an item

We’re always looking for items relating to the Byron family, Nottingham lace or quirky and evocative objects to include in our handling collections, Access Artefacts. If you own a noteworthy artefact which you think might enhance our existing collections, please let us know.

Give a virtual gift

Stuck for what to give to the person who has everything? Our virtual gifts are ideal for any occasion, and they’re part of the fabric of our iconic heritage site. Help conserve our collections or donate in a loved one’s name.

Give in memory

Our heritage sites mean so much to so many, and giving in memory is a way to celebrate the life of a loved one. Sponsor a plaque in the fragrant herb gardens or at a given place which holds personal significance. Contact us and we will endeavour to accommodate any wishes.
