Following a lengthy suspension as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the
CUMS Instrument Collection is again available for hire from 1st June 2021.
Please note that in the event of a change in the public
health situation as applicable to the University or West Road Concert Hall, we
may have to suspend the service at short notice; this is likely to entail
cancelling existing bookings in which case it will be the responsibility of the
hirer to make alternative arrangements.
If you have any queries or would like to discuss specific requirements,
the Instrument Management Team.
Please use the cleaning products provided in the cupboard to spray the
instruments when you pick them up and when you drop them off – we are
not cleaning them between hires so please ensure that you use
the cleaning products when you collect the instruments. Details of the products
to use and directions for use will be on the inside door of the instrument
Wind instruments are currently not available to book on the website as they
need to be professionally cleaned between use and quarantined. If you would
like to hire a wind instrument, please contact
