Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact to register your interest.

Funded place for a Hampshire Solent museum at Business South 'Leisure and Tourism' Breakfast Briefing 12 June 2015

Update 18 May 2015: The funded place has already been taken up. Congratulations to Royal Armouries Fort Nelson. To book yourself a place contact Business South direct.

Under our ‘Better Business’ key theme, we support museums to be ever more enterprising and income savvy, building relevant fundraising with a mature approach to finance management.

To contribute to this theme, we will help museums identify new opportunities for working with local businesses. We’ll be supporting museums to meet and work with a wide range of businesses, both to learn new commercial skills and to identify partnership activities that can be developed into sustainable income streams.

This month, we are working with Business South and offering a funded place at a special Leisure and Tourism breakfast briefing, taking place in Southampton on the morning of Friday 12 June 2015.

The funded ticket is worth up to £60.00 plus VAT and will give your museum access to a valuable business networking opportunity, latest information on exciting Leisure and Tourism projects happening across the region, talks on key aspects of Leisure and Tourism in the region and a delicious breakfast.

Applications for the funded place is now open. It will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
