Service Changes at Suffolk Record Office

Suffolk Archives Transformation information

We are excited to be bringing an ambitious project to Suffolk, which will transform the way we engage with archives.

Set to open in Spring 2020, “The Hold: a Suffolk Archive service for the 21st Century” will create a new, flagship heritage facility, to care for and showcase our county’s records and collections. It will bring locally and nationally significant exhibitions to all Suffolk Archives branches, state of the art research facilities and more access than ever before to digital collections.

The countywide activity plan which comes hand in hand with The Hold building, enables us to deliver many more archive related events, learning activities and digital programmes across Suffolk, meaning more people can truly connect with Suffolk’s unique and fascinating history than ever before.
