Join us for a day exploring fairy tales in our Knowledge Centre Theatre. Six experts will discuss the origins of fairy tales, how fairy tales have developed and spread around the world, the sense of place created within them, and how they have been adapted for modern day audiences. Encounter well-known fairy tale characters, and discover stories you’ve never heard of before.

Speakers include Michelle Anjirbag, University of Cambridge, Jane Carroll, Trinity College Dublin and Dr Tamara Pizzoli, author and publisher.
