M&S Company Archive opens
The M&S Company Archive at the Michael Marks Building on the western campus, opens on 15 March with an invitation only preview. The doors open to the public the following day, Friday 16 March.
The Archive will launch with a new 'Marks in Time' exhibition, an interactive children's area, a research area, and a reading room (which must be booked in advance) offering direct access to the collections. At 10am, Company Archivist Katharine Carter will introduce the collection, and there will be behind-the-scenes tours at 12.00, 1.30, and 3.00pm.
The opening will be followed by a series of family events, beginning on Saturday 17 March, when visitors will be able to follow a sweetie trail to discover what sweets were like in the days before Percy Pig. Please contact the Archive to book your place or book online.
