Launch day

Thanks to the hard work of many colleagues, and the vocal support of our champions, including Vanessa Redgrave, Stephen Fry, Professor Jonathan Bate, Sir Peter Hall and Thelma Holt, we have arrived at the day of our campaign launch.

Maev Kennedy visited us yesterday, and writes about Conservation and Collection Care‘s work in The Guardian.

Fiona Wilson writes about the first funding campaign for the Bodleian’s First Folio in The Times [paywall], the newspaper that spear-headed the 1905/06 campaign.

The Telegraph takes up the story of our champions, as do MSN News and ITV news.

BBC News tells the story of the First Folio, as do the New York Times Arts Beat blog and Huffington Post.
