The Cadbury Research Collection is held at the Edgbaston Campus of the University of Birmingham. This visit allows a rare opportunity to see a close hand one of the country’s most extensive collection of original Baskerville material. Senior Librarian Martin Killeen will introduce the collection’s treasures and members will be able to handle the material. Unlike a personal research visit to a special collection, members will be in the company of fellow Baskerphiles from many different backgrounds and can compare notes on their specific areas of interest. This will be the last Baskerville Society event of the year and will be followed by a meal at a nearby pub or restaurant (not included in the ticket price).
