Events at The London Library are back! And we can’t wait to fill the Reading Room again with discussion, music, poetry and chat.  

We’ll be welcoming a brilliant array of writers, artists – and audiences – through our doors for a programme as eclectic as our collection – art, fiction, biography, history, politics and more: from revolutionary women artists to ground-breaking fiction; the dramatic history of libraries to the spectacular life of spectacles; the beginnings of the Cold War to the current crisis; and poets in abundance, with Lemn Sissay kicking off the programme and Inua Ellams bringing the hip-hop joy with his legendary R.A.P. (Rhythm and Poetry) Party.  

And fear not, if you got used to getting your live literature fix from the comfort of home, most events will be livestreamed and some are still online only. All in-person events will follow up-to-date government COVID recommendations and capacity will be limited.

You can buy tickets and find more information here. If you have any queries feel free to get in touch with us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  

We look forward to seeing you at the Library!
