Backing the Burrell

The 2022 refurbishment of The Burrell Collection was made possible thanks to the support and contribution of so many people and organisations. Financial support, expert input and guidance, specialist advice, and time given freely for feedback and suggestions are just some of the areas that enable a huge project like this to succeed.

We would like to thank those who have given so much in bringing this amazing project to life.
