Join the LBA Family: Become a Friend

People in the SSW Shop Gallery

Becoming a 'Friend' contributes to our arts organisation Lyme Bay Arts, allowing us to continue our work as a Community Interest Company and grow the reputation of our flagship gallery and shop, Sou’-Sou’-West.  This year, we are re-launching our supporters' scheme, and would like to invite you to join us now as a Friend of LBA.

For only £30 (£40 for ‘Plus One’) you will be joining a network of like-minded people who love the visual arts, helping us to create opportunities for artists and makers, to realise our ambitious programme of exhibitions and events, and to ensure our stability and accessibility continues long into the future to benefit our local community.


You can also purchase your membership in person in the
Sou'-Sou'-West Gallery or SSW Shop.


More reasons to join us

Special Access to Exhibitions and Events

Enjoy prioritised access to artist’s talks, preview days, demonstrations and special events.

We understand that many of our supporters work standard office hours or cherish their weekends as family time, which is why we have extended our opening hours to 7:00 just for you on the first Wednesday of every show.  Booking essential.

Friends Discounts

Treat yourself in SSW Shop with our supporter promotion codes to gain discounts on exclusive items (online and in store), sent directly to you throughout the year, so you can enjoy art for less.

Stay In Touch

Keep abreast with ‘What’s On’ at SSW, sent quarterly.

We will also send you regular e-communications with behind-the-scenes information about current and upcoming shows, advance notice of creative activities and opportunities, alerts to new products and collections in SSW Shop and early access to online exhibitions.

The past couple of years have been uncertain, and we are incredibly fortunate to have made it through.  Your support has been crucial.  Whatever 2022 and beyond throws at us, we hope to remain a place that inspires others; a place where a diverse range of art is shown, created, and discussed.  

Thank you for helping to make this possible.
