Library of Birmingham - Discovery Season
Until 31 December
Curated by Capsule and supported by Arts Council England, the Library of Birmingham Discovery Season runs from 3 September until 31 December. Bringing the Library’s stunning new spaces to life, it has taken its inspiration from the Library’s internationally important archives and special collections, with events, performances, photography, workshops, music and dance for every age and interest.
Australian producers Super Critical Mass will create a large-scale dramatic spectacle to mark the opening of the new library. Around two hundred brass players of all ages, from professional to amateur musicians will fill the air with sound throughout the building.

Highlights of the Discovery Season include ‘The Pavilion’, a specially commissioned cabinet of curiosities created by multi-award-winning artist Morag Myerscough, a weekend of cabaret and cinema to celebrate Birmingham’s long and colourful association with Early Cinema, and a trail of artworks situated across the building, each making reference to the library’s rich collections and archives.
High profile writers including Lionel Shriver and Carol Ann Duffy will appear at the Birmingham Literature Festival in October, programmed by Writing West Midlands.
