The Friends of Tewkesbury Abbey

helping to preserve the Abbey for future generations

Who we are

The Friends is a membership organisation. Our members are made up from both local and distant supporters. Whether the interest comes from the Spiritual aspects of this magnificent building, its Architecture or History, all are welcome to join us. We bring together members of all religions and none, whose common interest is to see the Abbey being preserved for the use and enjoyment of future generations.
