Ambassadors

In addition to aforementioned persons, the Museum is fortunate to have a panel of active retired printers and typesetters who bring the collection to life on a regular basis. Keeping with tradition, this group is called the “Chapel” and the Father of the Chapel (FOC) is Brendan Murphy. The Chapel is currently seeking printers who can assist with demonstrating the printing presses in the collection – applications can be made out to the FOC.

Volunteers

The Museum is additionally supported by the generosity of a voluntary panel who donate their time by assisting with front of house, the Museum’s Education programme, documentation and other project work.
