The Bank of England’s third online talk focusses on the new £50 note. On 27 May 2021 from 6pm to 7pm the Bank of England curator Kirsty Parsons will take you on a journey as she explores the £50 note through time. During this talk historical examples of this banknote will be showcased and looked at what has changed over time and why. The chief cashier, Sarah John will then look at the newest note – featuring the father of modern computer science, Alan Turing. Discover how Turing’s work inspired some of the subtle designs on the latest polymer banknote.
