Series: Jonathan Swift at 350: Lost and Found

The world’s greatest satirist, Jonathan Swift, turns 350 years old in November 2017. Lost in a series of fantastical places, the narrator of his most famous work, Gulliver’s Travels, enthrals everyone he meets with his adeptness in lying (‘the thing which is not’) — that is, storytelling. Through a series of hands-on activities and immersive events centred on ‘tall tales’ in the City of Discovery, Jonathan Swift at 350: Lost and Found engages with the extraordinary legacy of a man who found wondrous and shocking perspectives on being human.
