Corporate Friends

Please get in touch to discuss how we could help your organisation by designing a bespoke package to suit your needs. Below are some examples of what we could offer, but there are other ways in which we could help.

Free and reduced price attendance at our dedicated training workshops

Each workshop training place has a market value of £100. Every year, Corporate Friends may send three delegates per workshop at no charge. High-quality support materials are provided for you to keep and use for future reference.

Other workshop topics include recording, research and publication. We are also happy to explore the creation of bespoke workshops and collaborative training.

Display your archive on our website

We can make available a space on our online catalogue where you can upload items from your archive. See examples here.

Research services

You will enjoy a reduced fee (and free initial time allocation) when we conduct research on your behalf, using both catalogued and uncatalogued material as well as the rich collection of mill books in our Library. You may request high-resolution scanned images from our image bank.

Copyright benefits

For non-commercial use, such as for small educational exhibitions and display boards, we can usually waive copyright fees altogether depending upon the requirement. For commercial use such as in films or larger-scale publications, you benefit from greatly reduced copyright fees. It is always worth enquiring first as we will take into account the particular circumstances when calculating these fees.

Dedicated web page

Our popular website will feature a dedicated page for your organisation, and you may provide us with the information you wish us to publish on our site.

Founders’ Room meeting facility

The Founders’ Room is an attractive elegantly-panelled meeting facility for up to 12 people in our Grade II* listed William and Mary building. Use of this room – either free or at a reduced rate depending upon the package we arrange – is an exclusive benefit for Corporate Friends.

Invitations to events

Corporate Friends are entitled to free tickets to our events, with the possibility of negotiating a visibility such as by having an exhibition stand.

We can also offer a significant discount on membership fees for heritage-related organisations. Please enquire for more details.
