Student Placements and Work Experience

D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum offers a limited number of student placement and work experience opportunities throughout the year. For more information, please contact our Museum and Collections Officer, Carolyn Melbourne.

Donations are ring-fenced and used towards projects which improve the museum’s offering.  Often this is in the form of match-funding when applying for outside grants and so your donation has a bigger impact than you might think.  Most funding applications require 10% match-funding, and so if you donate £1, this helps the museum to get £10 towards exciting new projects.  Previous projects have included conservation of valuable artefacts, education provision and our latest project will see the museum set up as an Arts Award Centre.

If you would like to donate to the Museum, please contact us on 0115 917 3824 or drop us an email at


Give to our Museum Collections

Front Bedroom Chest of Drawers in the Museum

A lot of the collection on display at the Museum are in our care due to the generosity of members of the public, who have so kindly donated over the years since the Museum first began.

Our current emphasis is on collecting objects, books, photographs, pictures or documents relating to D.H. Lawrence and his family. Recent wonderful additions have been an early pirate edition of Lady Chatterley’s Lover and a dresser owned by the Lawrence family when they lived in Eastwood.
