Welcome to the website of the British Sporting Art Trust. Have a look round to find information on our collection, on joining and how to contact us.

The British Sporting Art Trust was established in 1977 to bring together a representative collection of sporting art for public exhibition and to promote interest in the subject.

The Trust runs an active membership programme with regular exhibitions at the Vestey Gallery of British Sporting Art in Newmarket and frequent visits and events. Two essays on sporting artists by leading experts are published each year.

In addition to the collection of British sporting paintings, prints and sculpture the Trust has a comprehensive library‚ and archive available to researchers.

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