Palace Green Library, in the heart of Durham city, holds Durham University's special collections. Our galleries are open to all and display treasures spanning millennia and the globe.
What's On View All Events
In these events, you can enjoy a guided tour of the exhibition to learn about some of the research behind the highlights and the making of some of the displays. All guided tours are followed in the Palace Green Library Cafe by a networking event for voice-hearers, their families and carers, a discussion event, and a film screening at Durham's Empty Shop.
When someone who hears voices commits a violent crime, it is often reported in the media as if the fact they heard voices is sufficient explanation. Is this true, or is there much more to the story?
