Culture Perth and Kinross trust formed

From Perth and Kinross Archives (

Culture Perth and Kinross

From 1 April 2016 Libraries, Archives, Local and Family History, Museums and Galleries, and Arts Development services will be transferred from Perth & Kinross Council into a new Culture Trust - Culture Perth and Kinross.

Moving to a new Trust will not mean any changes to the service you currently receive from the Council Archive. Services and opening hours will stay as they are now and you are unlikely to notice any difference when you use Libraries, Archives or Local and Family History services. The permanent collections held in the Council Archive and Local & Family History will remain in the ownership of the Council and arrangements for material held on loan will be with the Council, but administered on its behalf by Culture Perth and Kinross.

You can continue to contact us in all the ways you do now, phone numbers will not change and service details will still be available on the Council website.

  1. If the transfer to Culture Perth and Kinross does not have any impact on the current services, then it should not be a problem to users. Else, the entire process might just stir about inconvenience which should be avoided in the first place.
