We believe that illustration makes the world a more curious, equal and compassionate place, and we’re on a mission to help everyone explore, use and be empowered by it. Friends support this mission through regular gifts, providing crucial, long-term support for creative programming, while we work towards transforming the historic New River Head waterworks into the national hub for illustration.

As a Friend of the Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration, you will receive:

  • Regular insight into the Centre's progress and activities, as well as exciting news and updates from the team.
  • Advance notice of Centre-run courses.
  • An invitation to a preview day, where we will celebrate the opening of the Centre together.
  • A Friends' annual report, reflecting on the previous year's progress and sharing plans for the future.

Join today.

You can also make a one-off donation.

Many thanks for supporting Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration and the future of illustration.
