The Egypt Centre is Wales’ only dedicated Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, attracting over 20,000 visitors annually. We use our collection of almost 6,000 objects to inspire learning for all and widen participation within and outside the Museum.
We rely heavily on educational visits, shop sales, events, and donations as our main source of income. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum has had to close for the foreseeable future, thus greatly affecting this income.
We previously organised a successful series of free Zoom lectures,and while some lectures we organise will remain free, this new Egypt Centre Fundraising Lecture Series will allow us to generate income for the Museum. Proceeds from the ticket sales will go direct to the Egypt Centre, and will help us to continue operating during these difficult times.
Thank you for your support!
