Events and activities in libraries

Surrey libraries are pleased to be offering a programme of events and activities.


I Am Birdmage by Neil Marshment showing the I am Bird immersive experience

Delivered by Surrey Libraries and Farnham Maltings.

Touring around selected Libraries in Surrey, "I Am Bird" is a new immersive experience presenting stories of migration. Equipped with their own headphones and mobile phones, audiences will be transported on an epic adventure across the library, following the extraordinary and everyday story of a young bird migrating from West Africa to the UK.

Lasting about an hour, this interactive and personal experience invites audiences to explore their local library in a new and exciting way, reflecting on migration through stories and art.

This experience will appeal to adults and children from aged 7+. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

Dates and libraries on the tour

I am Bird is made possible by Arts Council England, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, and National Rural Touring Forum.
