Sunday 29 November is #MuseumShopSunday. It’s never been more important to support your favourite cultural attractions and #MuseumShopSunday is an opportunity to do just that.

Here are some reasons why you should get on board this year:

1. Buy unique gifts
Got a friend or family member who's really into something very specific? There's probably a museum or institution for it. Why not get them a thoughtful gift from a cultural shop? Find a print of a landmark they love and are missing, find some brilliant artwork to brighten up their new home office or find a gift that's truly unique.

2. Support local businesses and makers
Cultural shops work closely with small businesses and independent makers. They're also a local business in their own right. Support your community by buying from a cultural shop instead of a large online retailer.

3. Protect Culture
When you buy from a cultural shop you are directly supporting the work of the cultural institution you buy from. In this wild and unpredictable year, buying online from cultural shops is a great way to protect culture and help creative industries thrive.

We'll be announcing some special new ranges by local artists very soon as well as some promotions so your money goes even further this #MuseumShopSunday.
