Brighton and Hove Association

Visitors in the gardens at Nymans, West Sussex.

Brighton and Hove Association was founded in 1972 to promote the National Trust locally. It also raises funds for its support, whilst arranging an enjoyable programme of social events and activities for members.

Brighton & Hove Association warmly welcomes new members.  Membership is open to all supporters of the National Trust and is predominantly drawn from Brighton and Hove.

During the winter we have meetings twice a month with interesting talks on offer, plus a number of social events including an Spring Lunch, Christmas Tea and a New Year Lunch. In the summer, we arrange outings to National Trust properties and other places of interest.

Why not join us? It's an enjoyable and interesting way to meet like-minded people, make new friends and at the same time support the National Trust.  We'd like to meet you.  Among the National Trust properties, we support are the local properties of Devil’s DykeSaddlescombe Farm, and Nymans Garden.

We hold speaker meetings from October to April at 2:30 pm on the first Thursday of the month at The Ajex Centre,  Eaton Road, Hove and at 7:30 pm on the third Monday of the month at Brighton, Hove and Sussex Sixth Form College, 205 Dyke Road, Hove.
The annual subscription is only £10 per person. For this members receive two newsletters a year containing full details of all that we have on offer.
You can join in with any or all of our events. There are coach outings to places of interest, meetings with speakers covering a multitude of topics during the winter and many other social events.
All of our events offer opportunities to meet new people. Do come and join us, and be sure of a warm and friendly welcome.
