Can I Gift Aid my Membership?

If you are a UK taxpayer, please do Gift Aid your Membership. Gift Aid increases the value of your gift to Compton Verney by 25% at no extra cost to you, by enabling Compton Verney to claim back tax from HM Revenue and Customs. To qualify, you need to be a UK taxpayer and pay income or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount of Gift Aid claimed in that tax year. If you are a higher-rate taxpayer, you can also claim the difference between the rate you pay and the basic tax rate on your donation, via your tax return. If you do not already Gift Aid your Membership, and would like to, please contact us on 01926 645 500 or at members@comptonverney.org.uk – it’s quick and easy to sign up.

Please note that Under-26 Memberships and Gift Memberships are not eligible for Gift Aid.


Can I lend my Membership card to a friend?

Membership cards are not transferable and are for use by the named Member only. We will occasionally ask Members to provide additional ID when visiting. Compton Verney Art Gallery and Park depend on the support of Members as we are a charity.


What should I do if I lose my Membership card?

On your next visit please speak to a member of staff at the Welcome Centre who will be able to issue you with a new card.


When will I receive my Membership card if I purchased my Membership online?

Please present your email confirmation on arrival at the Welcome Centre and our Admissions team will issue you with your membership card(s) and membership welcome information.

Compton Verney is an independent gallery committed to sharing our passion for art with as many people as possible. Your membership will enable us to continue to preserve our world-class collections and historic grounds for future generations.

Here’s just a few of the ways your membership helps us:

  • £25 pays for markers to identify special plants in the landscape
  • £50 pays for materials for an art trolley to help children creatively explore the theme of exhibitions
  • £75 pays for a touch screen mounting in the galleries so visitors can learn more and leave comments.

Education– Compton Verney strives to inspire people of all ages and abilities, to give them the opportunity to explore, learn and develop their interests of the arts. School visits engage children and help grow their interests. Workshops and hands-on activities are a key aspect of the education programme.

Community– Compton Verney aims to make the Arts more accessible to a wider audience, giving people the opportunity to get involved, including those in our local community.

Parkland– Compton Verney’s maintenance programme covers the care and restoration of our Capability Brown landscape.

We aim to preserve our history, art and parkland for future generations to enjoy. With help from Members we are able to continue carrying out and developing the work we do.

There are many ways in which you can support us further, including volunteering, leaving a gift in your will, or adopting a tree or an artwork. You might like to consider joining as a Supporter, Patron or Benefactor. If you would like more information about any of these options, please call us on 01926 645 500.
