SPECIAL EVENT: Join the Bookshop Band, acclaimed folk trio, for an intimate concert of songs inspired by Shakespeare's plays, performed in the atmospheric surroundings of the V&A’s National Art Library.
The Bookshop Band have been touring the UK's bookshops for three years, writing and performing songs inspired by books. Their performances are inextricably linked to the books themselves, as the members of the band take it in turns to describe where the inspiration for each song came from. They have worked with a huge array of authors, from Kate Mosse to Ian Rankin, and are regularly featured on BBC radio.
