Dickens and the Workhouse

The recent discovery that as a youth Charles Dickens lived only a few doors from a major London workhouse made headlines worldwide.


The recent discovery that as a youth Charles Dickens lived only a few doors from a major London workhouse made headlines worldwide, and the campaign to save it from demolition caught the public imagination. Ruth Richardson, the historian responsible for these exciting new findings, will explain how profoundly important these years were to his subsequent writing career.

Ruth Richardson is a historian and the author of a number of books. Her most recent book is The Making of Mr Gray’s Anatomy, winner of the 2009 Medical Journalists’ Open Book Award. She is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and Honorary Professor of Humanities and Medicine at Hong Kong University.

The lecture will be followed by a free glass of wine and an opportunity to view the museum.
Admission price £10.00. (Members of the Florence Nightingale Museum £8.00) To book, please contact Katie Edwards on katie@florence-nightingale.co.uk or 020 7620 0374.
