This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 22nd Feb 2024

 Free

As part of the Library’s exhibition, Shakespeare’s First Folios: A 400 Year Journey, the Friends are delighted to bring you Shakespeare’s First Folio: Bringing the Book Alive.
This evening brings together stars of stage and screen* to read excerpts from some of Shakespeare’s famous (and lesser known) works, interspersed with exciting new poems by contemporary poets. These readings will bring alive Shakespeare’s words and provide important context in which we also see how these historic works continue to speak to the ‘now’.

Join us to hear Freddie Fox, Samantha Bond, David Horovitch, Joanna David, award-winning poet Daljit Nagra and Institute of English Studies Research Fellow Yewande Okuleye*, an interdisciplinary researcher, poet and practitioner, along with other special guests who will read from these beloved texts.

The readings will be followed by a reception and includes optional tours of the exhibition, with the chance to see one of our two original First Folios on display.

The event is free, but booking is essential.

*Speakers subject to work commitments.
