Hawthorn has been added to the Science Museum’s preferred supplier list, it was announced today.

The creative technical provider joins the list of approved production suppliers, each vetted for their technical expertise, creativity, adherence to health and safety legislation and ability to work to the venue’s operational procedures.

Hawthorn already works frequently in London’s heritage sector, at venues including the Natural History Museum, Gibson Hall and the V&A.

“We are delighted that Hawthorn has joined our accredited supplier list,” said Ben Lheureux, group operations manager at the Science Museum. “From the event organiser’s perspective, they bring a wealth of technical event expertise, combined with huge flair and a team of creative talent.

“From our side, they have a diligent outlook to our operational requirements, and work sympathetically within the space to preserve and protect the integrity of the venue and its contents.”
