The Times Newseum 1785 - 2013

5 October – 3 November 2013

The Times has been at the forefront of news gathering for more than 228 years during which time it has accumulated a wealth of artefacts, letters, photographs, dispatches, paintings and many other treasures. This year, to mark The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival and the re-opening of The Wilson, the public will have the rare chance to see inside The Times Archive.

Why did Tennyson base his famous poem on one man's eyewitness account of the Charge of the Light Brigade? What was Soviet spy Kim Philby doing claiming for a camel hair coat in his expenses in 1940? What does a modern day war reporter wear to work? All these and other fascinating secrets are revealed – exclusively, of course – at The Times Newseum Archive exhibition.
