Inside St Bride

With Bob Richardson

Date: 3 August 2021

Time: 6.30–8.30pm

Tickets: £18.50–£22

Location: The Passmore Edwards Room

Have you ever wondered what the collections in the St Bride Library hold beyond its well-known stars including the work of Pouchée, Eric Gill and our phenomenal collection of type specimens?

Then look no further . . .

We would like to invite you to join us for an intimate evening held in our Passmore Edwards room, to get a closer look at some of the hidden treasures in the St Bride collection and learn more about them from font of all knowledge, Bob Richardson.

Bob has been working and volunteering at St Bride for over 10 years. During that time, he has come to care for and know the collection inside out (well almost!); and when he comes across something new or interesting, he notes it down in a special little black book.

During the evening, he will be sharing some of the treasures listed in his book and will reveal their stories and history with you. It will be a very special and unique chance to see these items up close in a stunning setting.

Tickets are strictly limited to 30 places so please book well in advance to avoid disappointment. (Price includes one free drink and nibbles).
