Bring along your creativity and create your own poster based on our Special Collections.

With around 7 million manuscript items and 50,000 printed books, the Special Collections provide a resource of remarkable richness and depth. Within the Archives and Manuscripts are the papers of the first Duke of Wellington, third Viscount Palmerston, and papers for the foundation of the states of India and Pakistan in the archive of Earl Mountbatten of Burma. Southampton is also home to one of the largest Jewish archives in Western Europe. Printed collections of note are the Parkes Library on Jewish/non-Jewish relations, the Cope Collection on Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, the Perkins Agricultural Library and the Wellington Pamphlets.

As part of the Summer Festival, bring yourself and your creativity to this historical art session where you can create your own poster based on the historical posters in our Special Collections.

What you need: Yourself, something to colour with and your imagination!

This session will be held in person on Highfield Campus in Building 85, Room 2207.
