Discover the art and science of colour at the Bodleian after dark.

From orpiment and shell gold to exotic ultramarine, this informal evening event introduces the pigments which adorn the manuscripts of a Turkoman prince of the black sheep and other Bodleian treasures.

Relax over a colourful cocktail and enjoy drop-in activities including mini exhibition tours, pigment demonstrations, curator Q&As and hyperspectral imaging.
