The Glaze Room

Some of our spaces may not be available to hire just yet, but we are now accepting bookings of up to 14 people in The Glaze Room.

Meetings, workshops, and training days

Our space in The Glaze Room is now available to hire and can provide your team (up to 24 people – based on bubbles of 6) with a large and safe space to come together for training, workshops or meetings.

The Glaze Room was formerly used for dipping lavatory pans into liquid glaze.

With our new socially distanced layout in this space, we can happily host meetings, workshops, training days and events for up to 24 people (number of delegates subject to Government guidelines at the time).

Every effort has been made to ensure a safe environment for our guests and staff with new procedures now in place including:

  • Two metre social distancing at all times (also reflected in the furniture layout).
  • Hand sanitising stations on arrival and available throughout your event.
  • Doors opened for guests to ensure touch points are reduced.
  • Full clean and sanitising of room, toilets and equipment before and after each event and between sessions where necessary.
  • Hand towels available in washrooms for drying hands.
  • Signage to prompt good hand hygiene.
  • Procedures sent to all attendees prior to meetings to ensure everyone is aware of how to proceed when at the museum.
  • Full risk assessment carried out for all events taking place to ensure they are Covid-19 safe.
