The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.


To create a Centre for day and short residential courses; celebrating the environment and culture of Dumfries & Galloway; connecting the Centre to the wider community

Shambellie House was given to the Scottish nation in 1977 when it became the National Museum of Costume. The museum closed in 2013. Shambellie House Trust was set up in 2015 in response to the museum closure, and has now developed its business case to secure a sustainable future for the House and grounds for the community.

Our plan is to work with lots of local and enthusiastic artists, makers, photographers and practitioners to deliver high quality courses that reflect the environment and culture of Dumfries & Galloway. But to do this we need to spend £6m - building an extension, bedrooms for the residential courses and make the house accessible to all. You can find a summary of the Business Plan HERE

We are working hard to develop applications for grant from the major funders but we need to employ people with the skills to do that, as well as keep the show on the road.

That's why we have launched this campaign to raise £10,000 to help us run the Trust and employ the experts to help us.
