Event description

Description

Come join us for a tour of the recently refurbished Brynmor Jones library at the University of Hull, followed by the Philip Larkin exhibition New Eyes Each Year. This is one of the events supporting Hull's year as UK City of Culture, but it's only on till October 1st, so this is one of the last chances you'll have to discover more about the sometimes divisive figure of poet and librarian Philip Larkin. He spent thirty years as librarian at the University of Hull, and was instrumental in the construction of the Brynmor Jones library in the 1960s.

Incidentally, be careful you don't end up on one of the student induction tours by mistake! Though, to be fair, they would probably be pretty informative for our purposes...

The University of Hull campus is a couple of miles from the city centre. Buses 103 or 105 will get you from Hull Interchange to the University (Cottingham Road) in about 20 minutes, and should cost roughly £4 for a return. Several car parks are marked on the campus map, but these are probably pay-and-display.

If you have any accessibility concerns, please contact CILIP Y&H before the visit and we will do our best to help.

If the tour is fully booked, please join the waiting list, and you will be emailed if a place becomes available.
