Culture Night 2020 – Explore the National Archives

No doubt about it this year’s Culture Night is very different from what we expected. In previous years we’ve welcomed hundreds of you into our premises at Bishop Street for tours and talks on our collections. However, this year has called on us to adapt and so instead of the welcome we would have liked to give you in person we present to you a series of films revealing all about the work that goes on at the National Archives.
