Archivist Robert Brown will take five lucky winners on a journey through 80 years of treasures held at publishing giant Faber and Faber's London offices at Bloomsbury House, which are not normally open to the public...


Faber and Faber's unique publishing archive ranges from its famous early 20th 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.
