As the leaves turn a reddish brown, and the days begin to get colder, what better way to spend an afternoon than exploring the UK’s finest exhibits displaying some of the most impressive art from around the world.
Here are our top 5 exhibitions from around the UK during this Autumn season:
Harry Potter: A History of Magic
British Library 20 October 2017 – 28 February 2018 https://www.bl.uk/events/harry-potter-a-history-of-magic
Concentrating on the British Library’s capability to unearth rare books, manuscripts and magical objects, the exhibition marks the 20th anniversary of the world-renowned and adored publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the opening book in JK Rowling’s universally popular series.
Bringing together centuries-old artefacts from the library archives, original drafts and drawings by Rowling herself and illustrator Jim Kay, the exhibition’s structure is inspired by the subjects that Harry, Hermione and Ron’s study at Hogwarts, from Herbology to Care of Magical Creatures. Extensive details of the exhibition will be kept secret to ensure maximum excitement for fans, however some of the pieces on display will include early printed books depicting the creatures that inspired characters like Fawkes the Phoenix, and the items that influenced the art of alchemy.
Presented in conjunction with Rowling’s publisher, Harry Potter: A History of Magic is the latest addition to the ever-growing Harry Potter universe, the ‘Wizarding World’.
