British Library Spring Festival 2012

Spring Festival 2012 has now come to an end! It was a fantastic five days of creativity, fashion and design at the British Library. Over 1,500 people took part, and highlights included a pop-up market and exhibition, digital graffiti, vintage knitting and top names such as Quentin Blake, Jamie Hewlett (Gorillaz), Neville Brody, Mr Scruff and Emma Bridgewater.

Attendees came to see some of the Library’s collections, from Japanese woodcuts to vintage knitting patterns, and found out how our Business & IP Centre can help them to commercialise and protect their ideas.
