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).
Many people support us by visiting the office, using our services and depositing records. We are very grateful to all of them and aim to provide an excellent service to everyone, whether visiting in person or contacting us from afar.
If you cannot offer a regular commitment but would like to contribute to the service we provide, you could make a donation to help us purchase records. Donations are held by the Friends of the Record Office who provide a fund we can use when records are offered for private sale. Funds also contribute to our outreach work to help more people use and enjoy the resources we care for.
There is a donations box in the office foyer or make a payment to:
‘Friends of the Record Office’
c/o The Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland
