If you would like to become a Friend of The Royal Green Jackets Museum, there are two categories of membership that apply to individuals (separate terms apply for corporate membership – available on request).
Life Membership: A single donation of £500 or more entitles the donor to life membership of the Friends. A donation may be in the form of payment by cheque or gifting a “qualifying investment”, for example, shares and/or securities listed on the UK Stock Exchange.
Annual Membership: A donation of £30 or more paid by annual, quarterly or monthly banker’s standing order entitles the donor to annual membership of the Friends. Exceptionally payment may be made in cash or by cheque.
Friends of The Royal Green Jackets Museum are entitled to receive:
- Free entrance to the Museum throughout the year for themselves and either one accompanying adult or two accompanying children.
- A 10% discount on all Museum shop purchases valued at £5 and above.
- A biannual Newsletter (spring and autumn).
- Discounts on ticket prices for special Museum events.
- An opportunity to take part in Annual Friends’ trip to another museum or site of historical interest
As a charity, The Royal Green Jackets Museum Trust is able to recover a substantial additional sum from the Inland Revenue in respect of each life and annual membership donation – currently 25p for each £1 donated by Friends who are taxpayers and who sign the appropriate Gift Aid Declaration. Friends who pay tax at the higher rate are able to claim higher rate tax relief. Donors of “qualifying investments” may qualify for income and capital gains tax relief. If unsure, professional advice should be sought.
To become a Friend, please complete an Enrolment Form and, if paying by standing order, a Banker’s Standing Order Form and forward them to the address shown at the foot of the Enrolment Form.

Receipt of initial donations/banker’s standing orders will be acknowledged. Thereafter, a list of current Friends, updated monthly, will be maintained at the front desk to the Museum. Those visiting the Museum will be granted free admission after verification that their name is recorded on the list. Cancellation of a standing order or a failure to renew payment will result in cessation of membership.
