Heallreaf (pronounced 'Hairlreff') is an Old English word meaning 'a tapestry hung on the wall in a public space'. The exhibition is being held close to the gardens entrance in part of the Edward James Studios or what was previously the Sussex Barn complex. It is not necessary for visitors to the exhibition to enter the college or pay to enter the gardens.
