We are excited to be bringing an ambitious project to Suffolk, which
will transform the way we engage with archives.
Set to open in Spring 2020, “The Hold: a Suffolk Archive service for the
21st Century” will create a new, flagship heritage facility, to care for
and showcase our county’s records and collections. It will bring locally
and nationally significant exhibitions to all Suffolk Archives branches,
state of the art research facilities and more access than ever before to
The countywide activity plan which comes hand in hand with The Hold
building, enables us to deliver many more archive related events,
learning activities and digital programmes across Suffolk, meaning more
people can truly connect with Suffolk’s unique and fascinating history
than ever before.
As part of the transformation:-
* Lowestoft Archives will be temporarily closed between Monday 3
February and Monday 2 March 2020 for building refurbishments.
* Ipswich Archives will close on 2 March 2020 for starting the final
preparations for moving the archives from the current building in
Gatacre Road to the new bespoke facilities at The Hold.
* Collections will start to be moved from the Outstore at Bury St
Edmunds Archives in March and so will be unavailable. The
collections stored in the main Bury St Edmunds Archive building will
however continue to be available for study as the main building and
searchroom will stay open to the public.
