Interested in becoming a Corporate Partner?

Here's what some of our current partners think about the scheme:

Cheshire College - South & West

“Our partnership with the Grosvenor Museum has provided Cheshire College – South & West with a wide variety of opportunities, allowing us to support young people in different ways.  The College was first known in Chester as an Art School, so launching this partnership after bringing the art curriculum back home to our Chester Campus was an important step in us re-developing our links within the local area.  It has been great to see our learners seizing every opportunity, from developing artwork for exhibitions, to taking part in workshops.  I look forward to seeing what the next year brings.”

Helen Nellist, Deputy Principal and Deputy CEO

Gifford Lea Retirement Village

“Inspired Villages, Gifford Lea, is proud to be a corporate partner of the Grosvenor Museum to support the museum to care for its collections, develop exhibitions and share Chester’s exciting culture and history with residents and visitors.

The museum houses nationally important collections of artefacts and art works and celebrates Chester’s rich Roman heritage. We are pleased to support the Museum’s ongoing events and initiatives, which our own residents enjoy so much, and look forward to continuing to work together.”

Lisa Fearn, Community Liaison Manager
