  • Ever wondered why 'love is blind'? Why do Americans say fall but Britons say autumn? Are you sitting reading this or sat reading this?
  •  1,500-year history told through the literary canon and the canting academy (underworld slang)
  • Once in a lifetime opportunity to see the earliest surviving copy of Beowulf and Victorian TXT poetry in the same room
  • Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend us your voice!  

Evolving English: One language many voices runs at the British Library from 12 November 2010 until 3 April 2011. The Millennium Library is one of 6 other libraries to be taking part in the project

The library will be hosting two week's worth of events celebrating all that is Norfolk.  There will be a project that will record English as it is spoken in Norfolk now, author talks and dialect based fun events.

Millennium Library and Fusion  10am  - 5pm
