Born in 1882, author Virginia Woolf became one of the most important literary figures of the twentieth century. Her most famous novels include Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), and Orlando (1928), which explore themes such as mental illness, homosexuality, and feminism. These were issues close to her heart, as Virginia Woolf suffered from bi-polar disorder, which led her to suicide in 1941 at the age of 59.

An exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery explores the life, achievements, and death of Virginia Woolf through portraits and rare archival material such as photos, personal objects, and letters.

Tickets are 7 for adults with various concessionary prices available. During the exhibition, which runs until the 26th October, there will be a series of events, including lectures, woodcut and painting workshops, dramatised readings, tours, a documentary screening, and the chance to sing some of the music associated with the author.
