Friends of Brading Roman Villa

The Friends of Brading Roman Villa is an independent charity (charity no. 1110720) set up to help raise funds and provide volunteer help and support wherever it is needed.

Whatever your contribution might be – annual subscription, a donation or active volunteer time, your support will be most welcome and greatly appreciated.

The Friends volunteers have a significant role at the villa. As the museum and family visitor centre becomes more popular, we give our time and skills in an increasing number of areas. In some cases training is required, which we provide.

From an active volunteer’s point of view, the villa is a very pleasant place for members to spend an hour or two doing something that is of real interest and which is well received and highly valued.
