a room of one's own

Girton College Library

the library

We have assembled a library that comprises titles, authors, and characters that Virginia Woolf mentions in her book A Room of One's Own. These books come from second hand book shops from all over the world.

 Audience members are invited to peruse the library during our "Reception" from 7 to 8pm.  And are also invited to return to Campbell House during the run of our show to sit and read at their leisure. A ticket to A Room of One's Own will allow you access to the library free of charge during the opening hours of The Campbell House Museum.
