Design and printing of material

The costs of mounting the exhibition must be met by the hirer. We can recommend designers and printers for the production of interpretive and publicity material.

The content and design proofs for the exhibition must be approved by the Collections and Interpretation Officer prior to the panels being printed.  If the content or presentation is considered to be inappropriate for the museum then the exhibition will not be allowed to go ahead.


Hirers will be responsible for arranging insurance for their own works. The hirer will be responsible for the security of works displayed in exhibitions.

Mounting exhibitions

Exhibitors are responsible for hanging their works under guidance from the Museum Technician

Staff at the museum will not be responsible for mounting works for sale.

The museum technician will be available to non commercial groups who are unable to mount exhibitions themselves however exhibitors must be present to assist the technician during the setup week. We suggest allowing 2 days for this.
