FREE: Research training session at The Keep archive with Research Coordinator Ross Hammond for The Orange Lilies- Brighton and Hove in the Somme project.
Not everyone is able to attend the whole day, so welcome to come along when you can, or leave when you need to. If you’re attending for the whole session, please bring a packed lunch.
This will be a chance to become a member of The Keep and some more advice about using the services there. There is no pressure to stay the whole day but I will be there from 11am – 4pm to offer any help.
The Keep is a world-class centre for archives that opens up access to all the collections of the East Sussex Record Office (ESRO), the Royal Pavilion & Museums Local History Collections and the internationally significant University of Sussex Special Collections. It is also a centre of excellence for conservation and preservation and represents the new generation of archive buildings in the UK.
The Keep is situated near the Amex Stadium. The easiest way of getting there is via Bus:
The following Brighton & Hove buses stop just outside The Keep car park at the Brighton Academy bus stop:
Number 23 (Brighton Marina – County Hospital – Queens Park – Lewes Road – Universities)
Number 25 (Palmeira Square – Lewes Road – Universities),
Number 28 (Brighton – Lewes – Ringmer)
If you have NOT visited the keep before please bring two forms of Identification:
- A photo ID such as Passport, Bus Pass, Driving licence
- A letter with your Address and Name
This is so you can get a reader card and get items from the Archive! This card is free for first time members.
