We are looking for a design company for our Thomas Hardy Exhibition which opens in May 2022. The company will deliver and manage the exhibition design, layout and construction.

The contract starts in April/May 2021 and runs until the end of June 2022. The maximum budget for the contract is £55,000. Deadline for expressions of interest: 10 March 2021.

Wild Life in the Red

What do you think about our exhibition?

Sawfish are also called carpenter sharks...but they are rays, not sharks!

There’s also a species called a sawshark, but that’s, well, a shark!

What the heck is a lek?

Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.

Road Runner!

The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.

Belly Buster!

The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
