How the Crimean War changed the face of Britain's men

Lucinda Hawksley will talk about how the Crimean War resulted in the return of the beard. How did Florence Nightingale play her part in changing facial fashion?


Thursday June 14th at 6.30pm
How the Crimean War changed the face of Britain's men
Lucinda Hawksley, an author whose books include Charles Dickens and Lizzie Siddal, The Tragedy of a Pre-Raphaelite Supermodel, will talk about how the Crimean War resulted in the return of the beard. How did Florence Nightingale play her part in changing facial fashion? Why post-1856 did so many British men sport their facial hair with pride? Come along and hear a self-confessed pogonophobe discuss how the war, the women's movement and celebrities including Charles Dickens brought about a radical change in men's appearances.

An illustrated talk by Lucinda Hawksley.
The lecture will be followed by a free glass of wine and an opportunity to view the museum.
Admission price £12.00. (Members of the Florence Nightingale Museum £10.00) To book, please contact Katie Edwards on katie@florence-nightingale.co.uk or 020 7620 0374.
