Sci-Fi lands in the capital

Date Posted: 04/05/2011

The British Library in London will be hosting Out of this World: Science Fiction but not as you know it from the 20th May until the 25th September. The exhibition will be the library’s first opportunity to explore sci-fi through literature, film, illustration and sound.

It will aim to challenge visitor perceptions of the genre by uncovering collections from the earliest manuscripts to the latest best-selling novels. Groups will discover an interactive space based on the ‘other worlds’ presented by science fiction, including Alien Worlds, Future Worlds, Parallel Worlds, Virtual Worlds, the End of the World and the Perfect World.

For further information on group visits, telephone: 0843-208 1144 or log onto
