The County Hall branch of the Record Office closes for the final time to researchers on Saturday 12th November. To mark the occassion of our move and to bid farewell to the branch, we are holding an open day event on Monday 14th November. During the day, there will be the chance to see some of the most prized items in the Record Office collection, such as Shakespeare's marriage bond and a letter sent from the Titanic. The oldest document held at the Record Office will also be on display along with other items which provide a glimpse into the history of the county.
There will be displays giving more information on The Hive and the History Centre branch of the Record Office in Trinity Street, Worcester – which remains open until April 2012, along with a nostalgic look back over the life of the Record Office so far.
There will also be the chance to speak to staff about the archives, the County Hall branch closure and the move to the Hive.
The doors open at 11am and close, for good, at 4pm. You are most welcome to drop in at any time during the day and there is no need to book or reserve a place.
We hope to see you there!
