Speech-to-text tour of Breaking the News image

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.
