This year marks the 500th anniversary of the publication of Sir Thomas More’s seminal text Utopia (1516), and King’s College Library joins the celebrations with an exhibition showcasing rare early editions and translations of More’s Utopia, which describes life on a fictional island in the New World.
If you would like to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some time daydreaming about a utopian future, why not pop in when you are in town. This free exhibition is open to all and can be viewed until Friday 20th January 2017 between 2pm and 5pm, Monday to Friday, in King’s College’s beautiful early nineteenth-century library.
Upon arrival at the front gate of King’s College, tell the member of staff on duty (or the porters) that you are visiting King’s College Library’s Utopia exhibition. They will direct you to the College Library.
When you reach the Library, simply press the buzzer on the main door and one of the Library team will let you in and welcome you to the Library.
We look forward to seeing you!
Exhibition runs until: 20th January 2017
Opening times: 2-5pm, Monday-Friday
Closed: 23rd December 2016 to 2nd January 2017 (inclusive)
