Information on visiting The Record Office from 19th July 2021
We are looking forward to welcoming more people back to the Record Office. However the health & wellbeing of visitors and staff remain our key priority. We are therefore taking a more gradual approach to lifting our Covid safety measures. We continue to encourage the use of face coverings for visitors and staff. Visits are still by pre-booking only although unlimited items can now be ordered on demand again. Please see 'Book Your Visit' on our home page for revised booking procedures. Thank you for your patience whilst we implement our gradual reopening plan. UPDATE: The Record Office will be open on SATURDAY mornings 21 August, 4 September and 18 September. We will be CLOSED FOR STOCKTAKING from 25 September to 9 October (inclusive).
The Record Office has an active exhibitions programme and we are happy to lend exhibitions to schools, community and local history groups free of charge. Most of our exhibitions are in the form of pull-up banners, although some are on boards.
Conditions of Loan:
We accept that reasonable wear and tear may occur during transportation and use. It is more important that the exhibition is viewed and enjoyed than it is to keep it in pristine condition!
Please report any damage to us as soon as it occurs.
Those borrowing exhibitions must arrange to collect the exhibition from and return it to the Record Office.
If you wish to borrow an exhibition please Contact us giving details of the exhibition and the dates required.
