For more information

Join us as we take you on a speech-to-text and BSL tour of our latest exhibition, Chinese and British.

This tour is suitable for visitors who are D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing.  Please book by e-mailing outreach@bl.uk or by phoning +44 (0)20 7412 7122.

On this tour you will be guided around our Chinese and British exhibition exploring British Chinese communities and culture. Chinese communities have been calling the UK home for much longer than many realise. Many are able to trace their heritage to regions across East and Southeast Asia, which has led to a rich and diverse culture across the UK.

In this new free display at the British Library we reflect on this long history through photographs, manuscripts and interviews with those who have lived through it. 

The tour is delivered by a curator and live speech-to-text transcription will be provided by Stagetext and a BSL interpreter will be present. One free ticket for a companion is available per visitor. Guide and assistance dogs are welcome.

If you require any other access support, please contact us on outreach@bl.uk or phone +44 (0)20 7412 7122 in advance of your visit.

Please meet at the Information Desk in the Main Entrance 15 minutes before the start time.
