Closure over Christmas and New Year

The Modern Records Centre will be closed to researchers from Friday 24 December 2021 until Tuesday 4 January 2022, and we will be unable to respond to enquiries over that period.

Given the current Covid situation, please check the website for updates over the closure period, in case we are not able to re-open to researchers as planned on 4 January. In line with our current guidance, the MRC is open only by prior appointment, due to restricted capacity in the searchroom.

We wish all our researchers a very Merry Christmas and look forward to welcoming you back in 2022!
