Change to BFI Mediatheque opening hours

20 April 2016
We are always looking for ways to improve all of our services and deliver the most efficient service throughout QUAD.

As you may be aware, due to ongoing technical issues, the BFI Mediatheque has had a number of temporary closures in recent times and we recognise how this impacts negatively on your experience of the service. Whilst we do everything we can to ensure that the BFI Mediatheque is available at all times, we are limited by the system itself which requires some work and updating. We have an ongoing relationship with BFI and are working with them to move towards a more up to date version of the service that will ensure the efficiency and enjoyment of the offer but this is going to take some time.

In the meantime, in order to deliver in other areas of the business and to ensure as much flexibility within the building and programme at QUAD as possible, we will be renovating the BFI Mediatheque into a multi-functional space. Until the new technology is completed by BFI, they have agreed to amend our partnership agreement to support this change to the space and reduce the current level of the BFI Mediatheque service in QUAD. BFI Mediatheque will be closed from Monday 25th April – mid May to carry out the renovation works. 

From mid May, BFI Mediatheque will be open from 12pm – 4pm every day. The new space will house one BFI Mediatheque station and this will be available, as ever, on a first come first served basis at Box Office. In order to accommodate demand, we will continue to limit each session to a maximum of 2 hours. 

We will continue to update you with any information we have about developments to the system and would also encourage you to look at our quarterly brochure for information about the many other events happening at QUAD.
