Sponsorship and partnership opportunities at the National Gallery

Working with the National Gallery can help your company to meet marketing, PR, client support and CSR objectives. You will also be creating a partnership with a world-leading cultural institution.

Sponsorship opportunities

Exhibition sponsorship

Exhibitions form a vital part of the National Gallery’s activities. Since the opening of the Sainsbury Wing in 1991, the Gallery has mounted an expanding programme of major loan shows that span Western European art history – from the finest Old Masters to celebrated contemporary artists.   

Exhibition sponsorship at the National Gallery is one of the most significant arts sponsorships in the world. Exhibitions are accompanied by substantial marketing and publicity campaigns, which feature the sponsor and run throughout London and Europe. Sponsors also benefit from exceptional client entertainment opportunities in our unrivalled picture galleries, and we work closely with sponsors to ensure that marketing and communications opportunities are maximised.

Supporting education

The National Gallery’s Education programme provides access and learning to over 300,000 people every year through schools visits, outreach programmes, lecture series, workshops and tours. To find out more about the Gallery’s Education programme, and how we can work with you to meet your objectives, please contact the Corporate Development Department.

Corporate partnerships

The National Gallery is proud to have built up a range of partnerships with companies over the years that build on the strengths of both parties to develop long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. We are interested in sharing knowledge and expertise, working together on marketing projects and much more.
