FRIENDS OF BRADING ROMAN VILLA

The Friends of Brading Roman Villa is one of two independent charities working together at this important heritage site. The Oglander Roman Trust (charity no. 1044506) looks after the conservation of the site, the buildings and the staff and The Friends of Brading Roman Villa (charity no. 1110720) help raise funds and provide volunteer help wherever it is needed.

Neither charity is supported except by its own efforts and in close co-operation each works tirelessly to maintain and conserve the Villa site.

A FREE community event being held at
Brading Roman Villa
on the 21st and 22nd of October

The event is being organised by The Friends of Brading Roman Villa, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Treasure Act. We want to get as many island children involved in the weekend, to show them some of the fantastic heritage and historic treasures found on the Island and how important it is to report anything that they find.

We have a Roman Silver Brooch shaped like a bird and over 400 Roman coins that have not yet been on public display, but will be unveiled at the Treasure Weekend.

The Friends volunteers play a significant role and provide time and skills in an increasing number of areas:

  • Museum guides and stewards
  • A specialist team of education guides
  • Maintenance of the Roman garden
  • Winter lectures given by visiting speakers
  • The handling collection of artefacts taken out into the community
  • Help with family activities and events on site

Less noticeable, but absolutely vital, is the behind-the-scenes volunteer activity which makes it all happen. Most of this can be done from home and extra help would be very welcome, particularly volunteers with admin and IT skills.

Whatever your contribution might be, your support will be valued and greatly appreciated.
