The Hold: A New Heritage Centre for Suffolk

Ipswich, Suffolk, England
09/09/2017 - 09/09/2017

Ipswich Record Office in its current site in the historic Bramford Road School was opened by Princess Diana on 1 February 1990. Twenty-seven years later come and view the proposed plans for the new Suffolk Record Office building, The Hold. The Hold is an exciting new heritage centre, to be located beside the Ipswich Waterfront. It will provide a new home for the bulk of Suffolk’s unique archives, education and exhibition spaces, state of the art research facilities, and more! This is a partnership project between Suffolk County Council (Suffolk Record Office) and the University of Suffolk. Supported by heritage organisations across Suffolk, it received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund in May 2016. The Hold’s activities programme will involve communities, volunteers and education providers right across Suffolk and should open its doors in time for the 900th anniversary of our oldest document in 2019!
