About the Development Trust

Fundraising Dinner

The Development Trust was set up in 1994 'to advance the education of the public by the promotion, support, assistance and improvement of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum.'

Since the redevelopment of RAMM the Development Trust has hosted:

  • Annual Classical Concert Series
  • Annual Economic lectures
  • Three annual Business networking events
  • Bi-annual Patrons' dinners
  • Lectures
  • In conversation evening by Lawrence Sail with Dame Penelope Lively and Helen Dunmore
  • Annual discos for years 9 and 10

Tom Poster, pianist said 'The Royal Albert Memorial Museum makes a wonderful concert setting: a beautiful setting with a very fine acoustic and a real sense of intimacy between performer and audience. It was perfect for a solo piano recital, and I can imagine it would be equally brilliant for chamber music. It's also rare to find a recital venue with a moose in the next room - a definite bonus.'

Penelope Lively said 'I much enjoyed the recent evening event at the Museum with Lawrence Sail - most welcoming audience and, for me, a pleasure to revisit one of my favourite museums.'

Melvyn Tan, Pianist said " The warmth of the audience and the wonderful hall made this a very special evening! Thank you."
