Promotional film for the Manuscripts and Special Collections exhibition, 'From Rags to Witches'. The film focuses on one of the exhibits, a collection of fairy stories and other tales by Giovanni Francesco Straparola.
'From Rags to Witches' ran from 4 May to 26 August 2018 in the Weston Gallery, Lakeside Arts Centre.
Once upon a time, fairy tales were not for children.
Original archives and rare books showed a range of children’s stories and traditional tales, from the beloved to the forgotten tales that never got a happily ever after.
