“Everyone who attended was extremely complimentary about the facilities – most of our guests had not visited the museum in some considerable time, and had not realised just how far you’ve come in the past few years.”

What a venue! The projector and speaker system was first rate and wow was the room set up perfectly! Absolutely loved that you guys got the brief and there was zero to change anywhere!”

We are keen to support students who require location support with their filming projects. However, due to operational commitments and the volume of requests we receive, we require students to complete an expression of interest form.

We will review these quarterly (January, April, July, October) and be back in touch during these months if we are able to support with your request.
