Reopening update

We are reopening our search room on Tuesday 8 June, subject to any changes in government guidance. An online booking system for search room visits will open from mid May. Please keep an eye on our social media channels for further updates on our services. 

We'll share more information soon about booking a visit. Make sure you're the first to know by joining our mailing list at

We are pleased that our paid research and copying services are now open for orders. To order copies or request research, please email for an order form to complete. On returning this we'll provide a quotation for your copying or research. 

Help us ensure art, culture & heritage continue to make a positive impact in our region.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you back!
