See below for location map.

The British Library Sound Archive holds over a million discs and thousands of tapes. Its collections come from all over the world and cover the entire range of recorded sound from music, drama and literature, to oral history and wildlife sounds. Formats range from cylinders made in the late 19th century to the latest digital media.

The visit will include an introductory talk on the work of the Sound Archive and a tour of some of their audio restoration suites.

The start time will be 2pm prompt, meeting in the main lobby of the British Museum (entrance in Euston Road). The duration is expected to be about two hours.

Previous visits to the Sound Archive have always been oversubscribed, and once again numbers will be limited for this members-only event, so early booking is recommended.
