Aims and objectives: To help promote and support the Curtis Museum & Allen Gallery. Friends enjoy a programme of lectures from September to May and 2 summer outings. They also 'Alton Papers', an annual publications of articles on Alton and the local villages. Visitors are always welcome to the indoor meetings.

Services and activities offered: The Friends of the Curtis Museum and Allen Gallery were originally founded in 1934 and are a group of people interested in promoting the Museum and Gallery. From 1980, the Newsletter of the Friends of the Curtis Museum and Allen Gallery included small articles of local history interest which some thought worthy of keeping for reference. With a growing interest in the past, it was thought desirable to provide an opportunity for those undertaking a wide range of local history research to see the results in print. The ALTON PAPERS are the result. Since the first volume, which was published in 1997, there has been a new one produced each year containing articles on Alton and the surrounding villages.
