Northamptonshire Archives and Heritage Service Open Day
10th September, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pmFree
Tours of the Archives Service behind the scenes and an opportunity to see some of the amazing archives that are looked after and available for you to use for family, local and social history. Plus a small exhibition.
Whether you have used the service for research or not, you may never have seen where the archives are physically stored and the sheer scale of how much material is held. Can you imagine 11 miles of shelving? This is your chance to see further than the public rooms and ask staff questions about their work. Hopefully you may then decide to pursue questions of your own in the future and make use of our unique and irreplaceable resources.
There will also be a small display of archives relating to the 70 years of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, including her Coronation and earlier anniversary celebrations.
