Spanish Flu After Hours at the Florence Nightingale Museum

Join us for a special evening at the Spanish Flu exhibition at the Florence Nightingale Museum where we’ll be performing an extract from Contagion. Alongside the performances there will be curator led tours of the Spanish Flu exhibition.

On the centenary of Spanish Flu find out how the pandemic spread across the globe, the strange and often dangerous ‘treatments’ and discover how nurses – inspired by the work of Florence Nightingale – were the only thing that helped, and therefore it was typically women that bore the brunt of trying to halt this deadly killer.

Thursday 22 November

6pm – 8.30pm

On the night £10
