Museum events increase by 6 per cent

The Science Museum, along with National Railway Museum, reveal year of growth

The National Railway Museum expects to serve 4,383 covers this Christmas

The Science Museum in South Kensington venue has reported a 6 per cent growth in events in 2015, hosting 170 events this year.

Meanwhile, the National Railway Museum in York is also celebrating a busy year, with year-on-year growth projected to hit 15 per cent.

The Science Museum Group, which operates both venues, said the combined growth is the result of a drive for events business this year, after establishing new daily delegate rate packages.

Neil Ormondroyd, group events sales manager at the Science Museum Group, said: “In a challenging economic climate, the Science Museum Group is proud to have made several key achievements this year. It is fantastic to see both the Science Museum and National Railway Museum predicted to see year on year growth of 11% and 15% respectively.

"This year we have worked hard to develop new, exciting DDR (daily delegate rate) packages at the museums, as well as expanding our events team and announcing a new approved supplier list at the Science Museum, to ensure we continue to provide the high quality service the Science Museum Group is known for."

The National Railway Museum is in the middle of a busy Christmas season and expects to serve 4,383 covers, an increase of 25 per cent from last year.
