Breaking the News

Join the debate on the vital role the news plays in all our lives at this free exhibition in libraries.

An old building with a purple filter and the words 'Breaking the News'.

The news has shaped the world we live in for centuries. Today we carry it everywhere we go. As the news faces the existential threats of a post-truth, fake news world, this new exhibition in libraries across the UK examines the vital role it plays in all our lives.

Join the debate at this new free display created by the British Library and inspired by its major exhibition, Breaking the News (22 April to 21 August 2022).

The exhibition will be displayed at Ipswich Library from 25 February to 20 May, and Lowestoft Library from 6 June to 21 August.

Take a look at our recommended books and documentaries on the power of news and media.
