We have lent archaeological collections to the Smithy Heritage Centre, Eccleston, pictured here.
We lend to local, regional and international museums, art galleries, cultural institutions, visitor and heritage centres. We encourage and support new venues and promote audience development. We have an ongoing parternship the Smithy Heritage Centre, Eccleston to celebrate the annual Festival of Archaeology each July and will be lending to them again in 2014.
