Daily, Wednesday 1 October-Friday 31 October

We're half-way through our three-year book conservation project and we've found all sorts of creepy-crawlies within the pages of our 11,000 books as well as intriguing comments made by Vita and Harold in the margins. Other finds include rare maps and letters from famous people. Let our guides tell you all the stories when you pop into the library.

Our Letterpress Re-imagined project

Discover the trove of ink and presses

A Minerva platen printing press, a working copy of the one in the tower that was previously owned by Virginia and Leonard Woolf will be installed at Sissinghurst in the Old Dairy barn. During October, volunteers will be printing, using cold metal, 100 copies of Vita's poem: Sissinghurst.

Come and learn all about it, and especially if you were 'in the print'... it may bring back memories of your days as an apprentice.
