Booking Agreement and Charges

Our aim is to make Pie Factory Margate a vibrant and exciting place to visit and do business.  We do not normally extend a booking beyond three weeks to ensure there’s something new for people to see.  We will consider any arts, craft and media related event – but surprise us!  We are always looking for something different (provided it is legal).

The hire fee of the gallery includes:

  • Use of the gallery and its facilities from Thursday morning (time to be agreed between artist and gallery manager) until 5pm on the last Wednesday of the hire.
  • Listing of your event with supplied information about the exhibition, one supplied image and one supplied artist background on Pie Factory Margate website.
  • Submission of your supplied Press Release to local newspapers and Visitor Information Centre.

We have a simple agreement that sets out what we expect of each other and the rest is up to you.  Payment can be made by cash, card or bank transfer.

A £100 loss and damages deposit is payable electronically 7 days before occupation on the first day of hire. This will be returned to you when you leave, however any breakages or damages to the building will be deducted from this. Loss of the key and alarm fob will be recharged at cost currently around £50.

We provide a comprehensive hanging system – please use it as we will have to charge you for holes made in our walls as well as misuse of hanging wires and hooks.
