Welcome to the website of the British Sporting Art Trust. Have a look round to find information about our collection, library and archive. You can find out more about how we promote British sporting art and see information on how to become a member.  

Since its foundation, the BSAT has strived to create a permanent art gallery dedicated to British sporting art. In collaboration with the National Horseracing Museum and the Retraining of  Racehorses Charity, it is now working towards the creation of a Palace House, National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art. Due to open in 2016, this will include the Fred Packard Museum and Galleries for British Sporting Art. Situated in the remaining portion of Charles II's racing palace in Newmarket, the gallery will provide a permanent home for the BSAT's collection of sporting art. More infornation on Palace House Project can be found

The Trust is an independent charity. Our registered charity number is 274156.
