Support the house

Talbot House is not just a living museum, it is so much more than that.

It is a house of people, a historic place built around a single vision and run by a small team of permanent employees and a large community of enthusiastic volunteers. A driven team of like-minded people who work every day free of charge. All people with one common goal: to make this House a home.

Om deze visie waar te maken en te voorzien in de kosten voor de dagelijkse werking, het onderhoud en de voorzieningen, kan Talbot House als onafhankelijke vzw alle steun gebruiken.

Dankzij jouw bijdrage, al dan niet financieel, kunnen wij het Huis in de toekomst blijven openstellen voor bezoekers en kunnen de komende generaties blijven genieten van de rijke geschiedenis die Talbot House herbergt.

Become a Talbotousian

On the 100th anniversary of Talbot House, on December 11, 2015, a new membership association was founded: the Talbotousians.

'Talbotousians' is a collective name for people who are active as volunteers in the House, are involved in the ins and outs of our association or contribute to organizing activities. In short, people who have made Talbot House a second home.

The term 'Talbotousian' was coined during the First World War by Talbot House founder Philip 'Tubby' Clayton. Tubby gave this designation to everyone who donated his time and talent to the Every Man's Club.

And that is exactly what our Talbotousians still do today.
