Petition to keep the Elgar archives in Worcestershire
Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member for Communities would like to draw your attention to the petition to keep the Elgar archives in Worcestershire. Please share with your contacts and networks.
The Elgar Foundation, responsible for the archives, has made the decision to relocate the collection to the British Library in London from their current location at the Elgar Birthplace Museum in Broadheath despite efforts to keep them in Worcestershire.
A strong case has been made for the collection to remain in Worcester at The Hive, where the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service is based, which was reiterated in a letter published in The Times today, with numerous signatories. A petition has now been launched by County Councillor Lucy Hodgson on Change.org in the hope that the Elgar Foundation will reverse their decision.
Councillor Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities at Worcestershire County Council, said:
"We don't want to lose these archives and we are very disappointed by the Foundation's decision to relocate them over 100 miles away to London.
Elgar was born here in Worcestershire and died here and this county was the inspiration behind most of his music.
We really hope as many people as possible will support our petition and hope that the Foundation will listen and keep these archives where they belong."
