A new exhibition at Bromsgrove Library aims to challenge the way that we think about the news we consume.

Breaking The News, will come to Bromsgrove on March 14-25. This exhibition is only available in 30 libraries throughout the UK.

The local series of events will coincide with a national exhibition taking place at London’s British Library. The displays will draw upon collections from regional archives and explore the value of news in each region.

Jamie Andrews, head of culture and learning at the British Library, said: “This season is a dynamic one – showcasing our partnerships with public libraries, museums, galleries, and cutting edge research institutions all around the UK."

Worcestershire’s contribution to the event will allow visitors to view local newspapers from as far back as 1713.

Worcestershire County Councillor Matt Dormer, cabinet member for communities, said: “This fascinating programme of events provides a non-judgmental forum in which we can all explore our own relationships with the news today.

“In a world full of misinformation, it’s important for us all to look at our own media habits and make sure the news we consume is accurate. This thought-provoking event will also provide us with some fact-checking tools and tips to help us navigate the news and read beyond the headlines.”

The programme of events in Bromsgrove will include the screening of a debate on 15 March chaired by Channel 4 Newsreader Fatima Manji and featuring journalists James Mitchinson and Rachel Horne.

This will be followed by an in-person discussion led by local newspaper editor Tristram Hunt and PR professional Andrew Marsh.

The tour, will also be visiting Worcester (until February 26), Kidderminster (28 March – 9 April), Malvern (12 April – 23 April) and Redditch (26 April – 7 May).
