Magdalene College Old Library – Public Opening, including Ferrar Papers Exhibition

The Library rooms will be open to the public for viewing on the First Thursday of each month in Spring 2020, 11am to 1pm. 

As well as enjoying the historic, book lined rooms, visitors will be able to see displays of items from the College in First Court since the 15th Century, in what was the medieval Prior’s residence.
