Support Us

The museum relies on your generous support

The Fan Museum isn’t publicly funded so we rely on the generosity of people like you to support this unique slice of history. We welcome contributions of time, financial donations and gifts of fans, singly or as collections to the museum.

STREET FANS: ART HAPPENS
– A crowdfunding campaign

This year the craft of fan making was included in the Radcliffe Red List of Endangered Crafts as ‘at serious risk of no longer being practised’. We need your help to raise £14,000 to launch a pioneering project which aims to put fan making back on the map.
