The Record Office is CLOSED until further notice
Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers remains our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we will close our Record Office from 4pm on Wednesday 4 November. The closure of our Record Office, along with other cultural and heritage attractions across the nation, will mean tougher times ahead for those working in the sector. We hope to continue to support researchers by responding to enquiries and providing copies of records where possible. Please make use of our online catalogues and resources. We will let you know when bookings are open again. We’re all in this together and will make sure our approach reflects the latest government guidelines. Keep up to date by visiting www.gov.uk/coronavirus and follow our social media channels.
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
