New audioguide live at Lambeth Palace

My latest audioguide is now live at Lambeth Palace Library, London. It accompanies an exhibition called Treasures of Lambeth Palace Library which is being held in the palace’s magnificent Great Hall. Interestingly, everyone entering the space gets an audio handset so it’s likely that a much higher percentage of visitors attending the exhibition listening to my script than you’d get at other museums or galleries.

The exhibition marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of the library at Lambeth Palace and features some of the greatest treasures from the collection,which has been added to by each Archbishop of Canterbury since 1610. Some of the stars of the show include Elizabeth I’s prayer book, Henry VIII’s handwriting, Charles I’s gloves he wore on execution day and the first Gutenberg Bible to come to the UK.

There are some amazing things in there and I had a great time researching and writing the script, which was then produced into the finished audioguide by my colleagues at ATS Heritage. Plus I got to interview Archbishop Rowan Williams as well, who you can hear on the guide.

Tickets are £8, which you can book online here. The exhibition is open until 23 July.
