    The second is the MLA EXPO 2017 at Telford International Center from the 6th to the 8th of October.

    We will have large stands at both events with 200-300 historical locks on show, just a taster of what you can see...

    The History of Locks Museum News
    Our Next Exhibition 4th & 5th March 2017, LockExpo, East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham, NG7 2RJ, UK.
    This now well established annual event is free to attend, register and more information at: www.lockexpo.co.uk. The on-site Orchard Hotel (Tel: 0115 876 0900), with preferential rates, is convenient for those wishing to stay overnight.

    We will be presenting a wide ranging selection of artefacts from our Heritage Collection including items from collections passed to us such as the recently acquired Frima Collection, and others. We will also be showing for the first time volume I of the Global Catalogue when your comments and observations are welcomed.

    Pop-Up Museum
    This exhibition will be the first outing for our new pop-up museum. A flexible modular display system that can accommodate whatever space the organisers or hosts have allocated to us, for this show we will be bringing 28 showcases which will build into a wall of locks. Do contact us if you feel that our exhibition would enhance your event.

    The History of Locks Global Catalogue
    Most followers will be aware that we are compiling the Global Catalogue. Although there is still much to add its felt that its now sufficiently useful and we should start to look for placements. We will provide the volumes FOC to a handful of selected establishments and institutions around the world ensuring the learnt information is not lost and therefore were starting to compile a short list of suitable recipients. This the first volume, (we think that it will ultimately reach at least 10 or 12 volumes), documents the fascinating world of locks and keys from ancient times to the recent high security locks used by governments. It also contains everything that we have written on the subject, but also records whats learnt about the artefacts as well as many tables and appendices. One aspect of industrial archaeology is that its an evolving one, new facts and understanding can quickly make the work outdated and so these volumes will be replaced with updated versions periodically, initially about once a year.

    In the meantime were Looking forward to seeing you at the show, for more information about this exhibition or any aspect of The History of Locks Museum do contact us, details below.

    Best wishes
