The Gallery is hired on a dry hire basis. However, a full event management service is available on request. A complete Hirer Information Pack is available on request. The pack includes all information that a hirer will need to host a successful event including all prices, capacities, access times, sample contract, full payment terms and any relevant restrictions.
