Young Friends

The ‘Young Friends’ branch of The Friends of Tewkesbury Abbey offers FREE membership to children and young people, to give access to special tours, activities and events, and occasional competitions.Your Attractive Heading

The aim of the Young Friends is to encourage children and young people to make a connection with the Abbey, particularly in terms of the building and its immediate environment, so that they can become “stakeholders” in its future.

Membership is open to under 18s. Children and young people under the age of 16 require the signature of a parent or guardian and contact details must be for the adult only – no direct contact will be made to any person under the age of 16.

Covid hit the activities of the Young Friends very badly and it has taken longer to recover than we had anticipated. We hope to reintroduce a programme of events and activities soon.
