Join us as we take you on a speech-to-text tour of our latest exhibition Breaking the News.

This tour is suitable for visitors who are D/deaf, deafened and hard of hearing.

 This exhibition explores how the news has the power to make and break elections, turn everyday people into overnight superstars, and bring them crashing back down to earth. On this tour you will discover five centuries of UK news through broadsheets, blogs and objects from the British Library collection and examine era-defining stories close-up.

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

Please meet at the Information Desk in the Main Entrance 15 minutes before the start time. If you require a British Sign Language interpreter or any further access support, please contact outreach@bl.uk or phone +44 (0)20 7412 7797.
