Join us for a relaxed opening of Alexander the Great: The Making of a Myth.

This event runs from 11:15  13:00.

Enjoy a visit to our current exhibition Alexander the Great: The Making of a Myth, where you can enjoy the gallery in a calm environment with reduced capacity and the sounds switched off.

This event is particularly suitable for neurodiverse adults and those with other sensory needs, but any adult who would benefit from visiting at a quieter time is welcome. The number of tickets available will be limited to ensure the gallery is not too crowded. Our staff will be on hand to give you a warm welcome and support your visit.

All visitors to this special opening will receive a visual story in advance via e-mail to provide information on what to expect at the event. Please note that the rest of the Library will be open to the general public but there will also be a dedicated quiet room for those needing a calmer space.

This event is free and aimed at visitors aged 14+ and their family or carers. All tickets need to be pre-booked for everyone in your party. For more information please e-mail outreach@bl.uk or call +44 (0) 207 412 7122.

The British Library is a charity. Your support helps us open up a world of knowledge and inspiration for everyone. Donate today.
