Saturday 12 June at 6.30pm and 9pm

Florence: the lesser known life and legacy of Florence Nightingale

A production of original song and storytelling Written and performed by Louise Jordan

Florence Nightingale was a campaigner and reformer whose pioneering use of statistics called for government accountability and equal access to healthcare for all. This one-woman-performance of original song and storytelling shines a light on lesser known aspects of Florence Nightingale’s life and work, to question why Florence’s extraordinary and wide-ranging achievements are so often overlooked.

Florence Nightingale spent less than two years as a nurse in the Crimea but devoted decades to campaigning for social reform worldwide, advocating equal access to healthcare for all, and became an expert in areas such as land irrigation, hospital design and postal services for soldiers, in order to advance her causes.

She lived to the age of 90.

This dynamic performance celebrates Florence as a ground-breaking statistician, connecting her work in the 19th century with issues we continue to face in 2021.

Pete says:

Really great to have Louise back with us again with what will be a very interesting musical look at the life of Florence Nightingale. Louise was last with us in October 2018 when she charmed and impressed everyone with her tribute to women in the First World War with the show, No Petticoats Here. This will be another long-remembered event.
