The Folio Society
October 2006 saw the launch of The Folio Society Gallery in the Entrance Hall of the St Pancras building. This new gallery space, sponsored by The Folio Society, will host a series of four free exhibitions each year offering visitors the chance to examine original manuscripts presented in an engaging and interactive context. The gallery is a natural meeting of the shared values of The Folio Society and the British Library, in bringing important literary works to audiences of all ages.
Each display will focus on one of the Library’s many treasures or an area of topical interest. Exhibitions during the first six months have included the Luttrell
Psalter (detail above), one of the most famous medieval manuscripts of the 14th century, and a celebration of the Proms to mark the 80th anniversary of the BBC taking over the running
of these concerts.
