Following Libraries Week, the Chantry Library is celebrating by adding two new publications to our shelves, a kind donation from Historic Royal Palaces. They both provide invaluable guidance for filming in heritage settings and putting on conservation-friendly events in spaces where collections are on display.
Just some of the topics covered include what food and drink to serve, which flowers and types of decorations should be avoided, how best to protect historic floors from filming equipment and ways to provide innovative solutions to common problems you may face staging an event. There is also a handy timeline for planning your event and who should be involved in the decision-making process (this could be security, collections care, facilities staff and, in some cases, surveyors) together with a handy list of recommended suppliers.
Thank you to the Historic Royal Palaces for the donation!
