What we will do

As well as building Kresen Kernow, Cornwall's new archive centre, on the former Redruth Brewery site, we have also planned a range of events and activities and will improve digital access and volunteering opportunities. You can read more about the building itself, as well as the events and activities we will offer, by selecting the relevant links from the menu.

We are currently offering full services from our existing sites - Cornwall Record Office and the Cornish Studies Library - while construction is underway. However, Cornwall Record Office will be permanently closed from 1 May 2018 and the Cornish Studies Library will be permanently closed from 10 September 2018 in order for us to prepare for the move. Kresen Kernow is due to open in December 2018.
