Would you like to be a community curator and help FOLIO Sutton Coldfield select Shakespearean treasures for display in Sutton?
We’re looking for a small group of people who would like to visit the Shakespeare Memorial Library in Birmingham and help choose material for display in Sutton Coldfield Library during Shakespeare in Sutton – FOLIO’s fun festival for all.
Our small group will get special access to the Shakespeare collection in the Library of Birmingham and will jointly choose from the amazing array of material – rare books, playbills, costume photos, stage designs, scrap books and much more.
This opportunity is open to all. Please note: those 16-18 will need a parent to give permission to take part, and those under 16 will need a parent to accompany them. We can cover travel costs, as we don’t want transport costs to be a barrier to participation. The date for this visit is Tuesday 8 March 5 – 6.30pm.
If you’re interested, in principle, in helping curate some Shakespearean treasures for FOLIO, please email Zoe on email@example.com
