Events and festivals

From Wednesday, July 25 2018 to Wednesday, August 22 2018

A fun event for the whole family.

In an age of computers and digital printers, it's sometimes hard to imagine what printing presses were like, over a hundred years ago. With this workshop, the John Rylands Library, one of the most interesting libraries in the city, takes you on a journey back in time. Surrounded by the smell of inks, you will help to print amazing images, full of bright colours and precisely drawn. This fun, educational workshop is completely free and suitable for children of 4 years and above.

From Wednesday 25 July to Wednesday 22 August 2018 :
- Wednesday from 11:15 to 11:45

Admission prices :
