Although Advent officially began on 27th November this year, I am publishing the Special Collections Advent calendar today in the run up to Christmas. Over the next 25 days, starting today 1st December, you will get some information about each of the historical collections held in the Newsam Library. Each day you will also be treated to a video of a musical performance or a documentary containing archival film footage or a short explanatory film on a genre of work, a famous educationist/theorist or subject taught in schools. There are also some fun films towards the end of the calendar.
So begin the count at http://bit.ly/2gVvWqg by clicking on the box corresponding to the date and enjoy! Oh, and don’t miss Christmas Day as there’s a real treat in store for you!
