Launched at the 10th annual Farm & Countryside Festival in June 2014, the Friends of Bassetlaw Museum (FoBM) is an independent support group for the museum. More than 80 individuals signed up as Friends of Bassetlaw Museum over that sun-drenched weekend with many more joining over the following months. At the time of writing, membership has continued to increase with more than 100 people from near and far (e.g. USA) now supporting our museum.

Friends of Bassetlaw Museum will be holding their annual Picnic in the garden (18:00-20:30) on Thursday, 17th August, 2023. Contact the museum for details.
