Become a Friend

Be a part of House of Illustration and enjoy exclusive membership benefits

Join House of Illustration as a Friend and enjoy being part of a community that is passionate about exploring, celebrating and participating in all forms of illustration.

House of Illustration is the UK’s only public gallery devoted to illustration. As a registered charity with no public funding, your support is vital to us – it enables us to develop our creative programme of exhibitions, to identify and promote new illustration talent, to commission new work and to support our education work with schools and our local community.
