We will be working behind the scenes to ensure our archives, records and our site are both secure and safe for the duration of our closure.

Whilst we are closed there are still lots of information about our local heritage which you can explore. You can search our image archive for instance and contact us for any other enquires via our website We will also be updating on social media what we are working on, you can follow us on twitter @tmbc_culture and on our blog
