Charitable activities

The BADA Cultural and Educational Trust actively supports restoration courses at West Dean College. There is a desperate need to train restorers and conservators for the future so that the beautiful objects we value and treasure now will be looked after for future generations.

The College provides its dedicated students with all the skills necessary to fulfill this and the Association contributes financially to the College and its members offer their specialist knowledge and practical guidance to the students and staff.

The Association's support for West Dean College is in keeping with its tenet that a good antique dealer is the custodian and preserver of the artworks that he handles for future generations.

Members of the public can also support the charity by becoming a Friend of the BADA Trust. The Trust runs events throughout the year which include master-classes, visits to private collections and free admission to many antiques fairs.
