Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

New Recruit

13th December 2018

Today is a watershed moment for the project. In the last week or two we've interviewed a really strong field of candidates for our LEO Archivist post and today we made the decision to appoint one of them - Jude Brimmer. We're looking forward to welcoming Jude to the LEO team when she takes up her post in January. 

Jude is a qualified and experienced Archivist and will be a huge asset to the project. She brings with her wide-ranging experience of working with various archives, in particular the fabulous Britten-Pears Foundation's Red House in Aldeburgh, where Benjamin Britten lived and worked, and which houses a unique collection of artefacts relating to Britten’s life, music and relationship with Peter Pears.

Welcome aboard, Jude! We're looking forward to you working your magic with the new LEO archive.
