Creature Feature Play Area

Play equipment giveaway

Thank you for contacting National Galleries of Scotland and expressing your interest in the Creature Feature Play Area equipment. We aim to find a new home and use for all the equipment so that it can be further enjoyed beyond the summer fun at the Gallery.

Please note the following:

  • The equipment has been manufactured for temporary use only although it will last up to approximately 2 years if cared for.
  • The equipment is suitable for installation on a grass surface so unfortunately it is not suitable for tarmac due to the way it is underpinned.
  • You will need to arrange the necessary transport to move the equipment to another site. The equipment is relatively large (download the technical drawings including dimensions) but it’s likely that a luton van will be required to transport each element.
  • Equipment must be uplifted 27 October and we need confirmation of this by 12 October (if you are successful).
  • National Galleries of Scotland and the manufacturers, Old School Fabrications, take no liability for the condition or installation of the equipment once it leaves the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art site.

If you are still interested please register your interest below by 9am on 4 October 2021. You will be asked to provide a short statement (150 words) stating why your organisation should receive the equipment. We will then decide the next steps required, depending on how many groups we have interested, who are in a position to take any items.
