Hi everyone! How are you doing? We are currently furloughed at Blue Tokay, so that's why we're a bit quiet! We are moving our summer 2020 shows to summer 2021 so look out for those date changes once we have them finalised. Look after yourselves and we'll be out and about soon, we hope.

What are we up to at Blue tokay I hear you ask? We've been busy talking to venues about their exhibition programming and planning which trade fairs to attend. This year we'll be heading to Manchester to the @Touringexhibitionsgroup marketplace in April/May at the People's History Museum in Manchester. Wonder who we'll bump into! What should we take this year?

Did you know we also help venues look after their natural history collections including some very old trophy heads. They all need TLC. We freeze them, clean them, mend them and return them to their owners. We get to see some very interesting specimens!

Janine Derbyshire from Derby Museums wrote a lovely testimonial for us about their experience working with Blue Tokay last summer. Thankyou!
"Working with Blue Tokay has been an absolute pleasure and a seemless experience. From securing their touring exhibition WILD we were promptly sent education and marketing materials to promote the show. Not only that, they created a floor plan for the installation and sent visuals so we knew exactly what could go where. The team at Blue Tokay were brilliant in terms of the installation and we didn’t have to do anything. AMAZING!! Crates and packing materials were taken away too which meant we didn’t have to find non-existent storage in our museum. The quality of the exhibits are just superb along with the interactives and interpretation. All audiences have loved the show especially children as everything is at a real child friendly height allowing them to get up really close to nature. We have since gone on to book another exhibition from them (Bare Bones) as we know the quality of exhibits and standard of presentation will be first class."

It’s been a busy old time at Blue Tokay over the last couple of months.... just the way we like it! We’ve been installing our fabulous exhibitions at Palace Green library in Durham, Torquay Museum, Amgueddfa Genedlaethol Caerdydd - National Museum Cardiff. We attended the AIM conference in Newark and the Kids Country event in Peterborough. We’ll be installing our last exhibition in Nunnington Hall NT next week! Phew..... we love it! 👍
