Exhibition Screens for Hire

The Cambridge Drawing Society has an inventory of 50 exhibition screens, which are available for hire throughout the year. The fabric covered screens measure 6 feet x 4 feet (180cm x 120cm) and can be erected in portrait or landscape orientation. The screens are self supporting with poles and bases.

As a guide, two people can erect 10 screens in one hour.

The hiring cost is £12/screen for 10 days. The hirer will be responsible for the cost of the CDS preferred carrier to deliver and collect the screens. The carrier cost is dependent upon the delivery distance. Typically in the Cambridge area this is around £110 to cover delivery and collection. (The recommended minimum number of screens for hire is 4.)
