The British Library at Boston Spa has teamed up with Leeds Digital Festival 2019 to organise a unique opportunity to discover the ‘Magical Mystery’ of the National Library of the United Kingdom, including an extra special insight into the complex, and diverse material we collect and preserve, and the extraordinary examples in which our collections are used for research inspiration and enjoyment.

Alongside a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit one of our vast robotic storage facilities (home to enough printed material to span from Leeds to London), internationally renowned contemporary visual artist Michael Takeo Magruder, invites you to take a walk through his ‘Imaginary Cities’, and the opportunity to travel back in time, and have a play in our ‘Flashback Lab’ .
