Friends of the Sedgwick Museum


The Friends of the Sedgwick has just celebrated its Tenth Birthday having been founded in 2000. It is a charitable organisation with the dual aim of providing support to the Museum and extending access to geology to the wider public.

The Friends organise a series of lectures and workshops through the Autumn and Winter months with outings and trips in Spring and early Summer. In March, around the time of Sedgwick's Birthday, we have our annual dinner in a Cambridge College and at Christmas we organise a party in the Museum itself.

 Throughout the years we have raised funds to support the work of the Museum; providing two annual prizes to students to work alongside members of staff, as well as a series of projects such as the restoration of the Barrington Hippo.

If you are interested in joining us please contact us on 01223 333400. Pre-booking and other communications should be emailed to and copied to  ...  or come along to one of our meetings.
