The building in Rothamsted Park that previously housed the Harpenden Sports and Leisure Centre was comprehensively refurbished as a cultural hub and re-named the Eric Morecambe Centre. The EMC opened to the public on 16 October 2021. Fitting and filling display units in the Museum, and moving our archives to the Les Casey Archive Room (LCAR), was completed in 2023.
We first opened to the public on Saturday 9 December 2023 and are now open every Saturday (from 27 January 2024) 11am to 3pm. We aim to open for longer and on other days as we build up our rota.
