MWM Patrons’ Scheme

Click Here to go to booking

Patrons’ builds on the successes of the original Friends’ scheme but brings the administration in house.

Our Patrons are the lifeblood of the Museum and over the years have been responsible for funding major projects such as Project Lucifer – installation of LED lighting throughout the Museum; Museum Doors – an Engagement Project for children; and an ongoing infrastructure project which continues in the Library and Document archive. This keeps us very busy in the winter months, when the museum is closed but our work continues. This is just tiny snapshot of our work, which has been much complicated by Covid19.

The contribution that sums from Patrons’ make helps to ensure we can mount an exhibition each year and make additions where possible to the Collections. This year’s exhibition is ARTE at the MWM is a celebration of occult and esoteric art in the Museum’s collection which was begun under Cecil Williamson and continues under the present director Simon Costin.

Each year we will be bringing you as standard an Annual Season ticket, and an invitation to an end of season social which rounds off the first Patrons’ Day – which this year falls on the 12th November, two weeks after the Museum closes to the general public. In addition, we have some exclusive online content for you which will culminate in an online event for Yule 2022. We are launching with single memberships only. A single membership costs £25.00. Upon registration, your digital ticket will be emailed to you, and can be downloaded to your phone or device. There is no need to book; just arrive. In holiday periods, please expect the Museum to be busy.

Patrons’ Day is exclusively for Patrons; there will be no members of the public in attendance. We will be opening our doors to you and showcasing objects chosen especially from our stores not generally on display. You will have the opportunity to meet and talk with Museum Director and Staff. In the evening, we are restoring by popular demand the evening social at The Wellington hotel for those who wish in to spend an evening in Boscastle.

We’ll be revealing our plans and sharing the Museum news throughout the year with you on our social media channels and via the Museum Blog, which is found at

Some highlights for this year: we are mounting a collaborative exhibition at Colchester Castle which marks the first occasion on which The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic exhibits externally at a major location. This is besides lending to institutions such as Bristol Museums, The Ashmolean, The British Library, Dresden Museums, as we have done over the past few years.

We look forward to welcoming Patrons old and new to the Museum and seeing you on the 12th November !

Best wishes and thanks ever,

The MWM Team
