The Bibliomancer’s Dream

The Bibliomancer’s Dream returns to Imagine. Visit the magical library in The Clore Ballroom at Royal Festival Hall and delve into hundreds of books that will reveal the answer to your question as if by magic.

The Bibliomancer's Dream is conceived by artists Alinah Azadeh and Willow Winston, inspired by the ancient ritual of Bibliomancy - the art of divining the future with books. Visitors are invited to select a book at random and pick a line or verse in order to learn a truth or simply inspire the imagination. For 2010 this enchanting installation extends to The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall in The Bibliomancer's Dream: Dream On, where the walls are swathed in books and more inspiration awaits.

The Bibliomancer's Dream is enjoyable for all ages, but recommended for children aged five and over.

The Front Room at Queen Elizabeth Hall is open 90 minutes prior to the start of a performance.
