Loans from the Horniman are temporarily on hold while we complete a major project.

Due to the Nature + Love project, the Horniman has implemented a moratorium on loans out, effective from January 2022. We expect the moratorium to last until circa 2025-26, and will provide further details as we have them.

All loan commitments already agreed will be honoured, and the renewal of ongoing loans in and loans out will continue as normal.

Our Loans Policy, procedures and general conditions for borrowing objects remain below for use by venues we have already agreed loans with:
