Friends of Red House

The north facing entrance to Red House

The Friends of Red House was established in 1998 to help Ted and Doris Hollamby, who had lived there since 1952, keep the house open to the public.

When the National Trust acquired the House in 2003, we were asked to continue their work there, particularly in providing tour guides, staff for the shop and tea room and gardeners.

We offer practical help and support towards the maintenance, restoration and conservation of Red House and its garden. We have funded several items of garden equipment, contributed towards the cost of replacing the main gates and in 2015 made a major contribution towards the Philip Webb centenary exhibition.

We publish a Friends newsletter three times a year and promote Red House through lectures, social events, and outings.

 By joining us you can offer support and enthusiasm and will be kept in touch with events and developments at the house.
