Explore the storehouse of Essex history and beyond



We regret to announce that we have made the very difficult decision to cancel all of our events until further notice. This is in light of the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and the government’s new national guidance around large gatherings and social distancing announced on 16 March 2020.

 We have been working closely with departments within Essex County Council in order to reach this decision, which we wanted to ensure was communicated as soon as possible in order to minimise any disruption to you.

 Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and here on our website for any news and for details of when our events will start again. We look forward to seeing you then!
