An evening with Florence Nightingale

Join Florence for a glass of wine

Thursday 23rd May, 6 pm-8 pm 

Come along to meet Florence Nightingale and join her for a glass of wine.  Florence will be at the museum to greet you as you arrive and throughout the evening she’ll be chatting about how she became a nurse against her parents’ wishes, what hospital conditions were like during the Crimean War (such as the dead horse she found in the well!) and how she campaigned for the rest of her long life to improve health care for ordinary people. Florence will also be gossiping about the men in her life, the marriage proposals she had…. and why she turned them all down!

You’ll also have the chance to look around the museum to see the actual lamp Florence carried to earn the name "The Lady With The Lamp" and to meet her pet owl, Athena.

Special performances during the evening at 6.15 pm and 7.15 pm 

£9.00 per person. Age 18+  Advance booking required.

DISCOVER FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE MUSEUM

WHO WAS THE REAL LADY WITH THE LAMP?

Located within St Thomas’ Hospital, just off Westminster Bridge, the museum was opened in 1989 and now forms a key part of London’s medical heritage. The collection consists of personal material associated with Florence Nightingale, items relating to the Crimean War and nursing artefacts. The museum archives include approximately 800 letters from Florence Nightingale and an important rare book collection of 284 titles.
