Library of Birmingham's Origins Season

Throughout Spring 2015, various times


Write a nice succinct introductory paragraph here about you event, such as this one... The Library of Birmingham is continuing its successful cultural programme this coming spring with events and exhibitions on the theme of origins.

The Library of Birmingham have partnered with the University of Birmingham’s Lapworth Museum to bring you Stones & Bones a fascinating exhibition taking you back in time to the Midlands of 600 million years ago.

A must for dinosaur and fossil fans of all ages, the exhibition also features a wealth of materials from the Library’s world-class archive, heritage and photography collections – from the ‘Young Naturalist’ Victorian children’s game, to early geological maps, and stories about some of the ground-breaking discoveries made by members of Birmingham’s Lunar Society.

Another highlight of the season reveals the spark that inspired the unique and amazing talent of Birmingham artist Willard Wigan MBE. The Library are delighted to host his exhibition, Through the Eye of a Needle, in January – a rare chance to see Willard’s incredible work.
