Who We Are

The Guild is run primarily of volunteers; with only a couple of paid members of staff, managing the shop and taking a lead on administration. It is governed by our trustees, who are supported by our President and co-opted members of the Management Committee, alongside those with executive responsibilities. There is a breadth of talent and expertise at the Guild’s disposal, with our trustees spread evenly across the varying age ranges of youth and experience.

HRH The Duke of Gloucester has been Patron of Barts Guild since 2006, a role he was delighted to accept following the death of his mother and predecessor HRH Princess Alice.

Copies of the Annual Report from recent AGMs are available to read and download in Publications, along with copies of Barts Guild News.
