Emerge Festival at ZSL

Over two nights in September, Emerge Festival will see a creative kaleidoscope of events take over 11 London Boroughs.

With one ticket, you’ll have access to all the night’s venues and some of the best breakthrough artists in town. 

As part of the festival, ZSL's Prince Philip Zoological Library and Archives will be offering guided tours throughout the evening on Saturday 28th September.

Join our experts as they take you behind the scenes of one of the oldest zoological libraries in the world. Home to a unique collection of books, artwork and archive material, step back in time to discover the history of our collections.

We’ll be revealing the lives of Joan Procter and Edward Lear, each from a different background and with diverse passions, but both of whom achieved so much before their 30th birthdays!  With material on display that is normally hidden from view and the chance to ask your own questions, be one of the first to experience this brand new event.
