All change at Explore The Past – Update!

  • 6th October 2016

On 21st September we announced some changes that will be taking place on Level 2 at The Hive.  We are now pleased to confirm that these changes will be taking place over the weekend of 29th and 30th October.   Because of the nature of the work it will be necessary to close the area so that the work can take place safely.  The resources in the open area on Level 2 will therefore not be available from 4pm on Saturday 29th October and all day on Sunday 30th October.   We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Historic Environment Record will remain closed until this work can take place, and will reopen on Monday 31st October at 1pm. 

Comments are closed.
