Outdoor poster panels

Our arts distribution service manages the many poster panels around Cambridge that enable the public to find out what's on at a glance.

All of the boards are situated in busy public areas, such as shopping centres, car parks, and green spaces.

The poster display boards are popular, so we recommend you book as early as possible – ideally two to four weeks before you need your posters to be displayed.

Coronavirus update: Leaflet and indoor poster distribution is suspended until further notice. Please contact us before making an outdoor poster booking.

Posters are distributed on a Thursday or Friday. You must deliver them to us by Monday to have them displayed later that week.

The panels can accommodate posters of various sizes, from A4 to A0. The boards are often busy, so if you want to display large posters such as A1 or A0, it's worth contacting us to check availability before you have the posters printed.

We work on a first come, first served policy when taking bookings for our outdoor poster panels, so we cannot guarantee that every site you ask for will be available. It is a good idea to choose a few alternative locations when booking.

Most poster campaigns display 20 to 30 posters for two or three weeks - we suggest you consider this as a starting point for your campaign. Consider booking periods when you plan poster campaigns and leaflet distribution.
