Although Advent officially began on 29th November this year, I am publishing the Special Collections Advent calendar today in the run up to Christmas. Over the next 25 days, you get some information about the historical materials held in the Newsam Library. You may even want to watch some of the videos containing archival film footage. Start counting by clicking on the image and then clicking on each box every day – but whatever you do, don’t miss Christmas Day as there’s a real treat in store for you!
