The BNA at ‘Who Do You Think You Are? Live’ – Olympia, London, 22 to 24 February

Posted on February 15th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

We’re very much looking forward to attending the Who Do You Think You Are? Live’ show, which takes place at Olympia, London, from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 February 2013.

photo of WDYTYA? Live2012Inspired by the muse of ‘newspaper taxis’, we’re planning to have a wallpaper made out of newspapers at this year’s show. We’ve seen the drafts of this wallpaper collage and, well, tis a thing of rare beauty – we can’t wait to see the full size version of it! And it’s certainly a step up from the wooden news-shed that was our HQ at last year’s event – although we were very fond of that shed (alas, it went the way of all the best Viking ships).

As well as providing people with advice and tips for using the Archive (and distributing our jazzy newspaper hand-out), we’re planning to run a daily competition over the three days. In short, we think it will be a very busy and enjoyable three days. So if you’re planning to attend WDYTYA? Live, please drop in on us at stand number 630 and say ‘Ooh, love the groovy wallpaper!’
