Archivist Robert Brown will take five lucky winners on a journey through 80 years of treasures held in the publishing giant’s London office at Bloomsbury House, which is not normally open to the public.

Faber & Faber’s unique publishing archive ranges from its famous early twentieth century poetry collection – including manuscripts of TS Eliot and WH Auden – to books on farming, gardening, art and architecture.

The night will end with a special reading from prize-winning poet Lavinia Greenlaw, author of The Casual Perfect and recent recipient of the Ted Hughes award for new work in poetry.
