FRIENDS OF QUEX
The Friends of Quex offers the opportunity of a closer connection to The Powell-Cotton Museum and raises funds to support the work of the Museum. Volunteers from amongst the Friends assist in many aspects of the daily life of The Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park in Kent.
A programme of talks and visits throughout the year provides members with more information about the collections and ongoing work of the Museum and other subjects of interest. Quiz nights and a summer barbecue are pleasant social occasions. A newsletter is published twice a year.
The Friends of Quex was set up in 1984. As the Museum receives no public or government money, the funds raised by the Friends have been a valuable contribution. They have paid for a wide range of items including three young peahens to grace the gardens, the re-upholstery of gallery seating, photographic equipment and a TV/DVD for use in exhibitions and the refurbishment of some galleries.
Members of the Friends enjoy free admission (half price at some events) to The Powell-Cotton Museum, Quex House & Gardens in return for their valued support.
