We will be closed for 2 weeks from Monday 15 January to Monday 29 January 2024. This is so we can do essential work to make our collections easier to access. If you have an urgent query, call us on 01305 250550 and leave a message. Otherwise, we will get back to you as soon as we can once we re-open. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
