This brief is for freelance tour guides to deliver guided tours of the exhibition 24/7, to pre-booked groups from corporate clients and learning contacts. 

The intention of the tours is to animate and illustrate exhibits, using an informed and engaging approach.  This ground-breaking and immersive exhibition will benefit from a friendly and informative tour which supports group visitors to engage in key themes and to make personal connections to the content through facilitated conversation and focus on notable exhibits.

Tours will be booked on a sessional basis and may be programmed as part of larger events such as corporate entertainment, drinks receptions or public ‘late’ events in the gallery which may also feature talks, film screenings or creative activities.
