The Chapel

A panel of active retired printers and typesetters 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 and a Monotype Caster Operator – applications can be made out to the FOC.


The Museum is additionally supported by the generosity of a voluntary panel who donate their time by assisting with Front of House, Education and Outreach, the Library, documentation and other project work.
