What we need from you

Hayward Touring exhibitions are available to tour publicly funded venues across the country, however these venues must meet the requirements set out on this page.

All venues hosting Hayward Gallery Touring exhibitions must agree to:

  • provide security, in accordance with the categorisation below
  • ensure correct environmental conditions
  • follow the specified hanging instructions


We recommend contacting the National Security Adviser to establish the security levels of your exhibition spaces.

Category A
  • Exhibitions require continuous invigilation during opening hours.
  • An invigilator should be stationed permanently in each exhibition area so that all exhibits are under constant surveillance. 
  • During the silent hours, a comprehensive alarm system must be used and the premises secured.
Category B

Exhibitions in this category require constant patrolling while open to the public, and a comprehensive alarm system and secure premises for the silent hours.

Category C

Exhibitions in this category require regular checking while open to the public and securely locked premises for the silent hours.

Exhibition criteria

Prior to booking venues must ensure they can meet an exhibition’s specific requirements concerning size, security and lighting. 


Except in special circumstances, two-way transport costs are included in the exhibition fee. Security Category A and B exhibitions are normally delivered by us, with installations supervised by a member of Hayward Gallery Touring staff. Category C exhibitions are delivered by parcel carrier vans, and it is the venue’s responsibility to help load and unload these vehicles, and to install and dismantle works without Hayward Gallery Touring assistance.

Marketing and Press

All public announcements, press releases, invitations, signs and other promotional material must include a hayward touring logo and credit line.
