The ‘Association of Friends of the Museum of Kent Life' is registered as a charity and strives to promote, support, project and safeguard the interests, aims and objectives of Kent Life and it's collection.
The 'Friends' are seen at many of the events, helping to bring history back to life, using time-honoured traditions and techniques and re-living bygone years. Whether it be working in the hop garden and picking the hops by hand or crushing and pressing our harvested apples in the antique cider press.
The ‘Friends’ also assist in facilitating our many Education Theme Days, including the popular WWII, Victorians, Romans and Tudors, and are often dressed in period costume to reflect the era of the theme or our many historic buildings.
Behind the Scenes The Friends are a vital resource to Kent Life and participate in many additional working parties which help to maintain the beauty and authenticity of our beautiful museum and attraction.
Providing this care for Kent Life's exhibits and artefact enables ‘Friends’ to get close to and learn so much about this fascinating collection of Kent’s rural history. New members are always welcome, for more information please contact the Friends Membership Secretary at Kent Life.
