In Flew Enza: Letters from the 1918 Flu Pandemic

Join us for an evening of letters written by ordinary people who survived the “Spanish” flu (1918-20).

What was it like to live through the most deadly epidemic in recent memory? 2018 is the centenary of the “Spanish” flu, which infected 500 million people around the world and killed more people than died in the First World War. Join us for an evening of letters written by ordinary people who survived the epidemic, often caring for family members, some of whom died in this devastating outbreak.

The event will be curated and introduced by historian Hannah Mawdsley, who is researching the social and cultural impact of the flu epidemic, and include readings by actors of recollections of nursing care from the archive written by people in Derby, Nottingham and beyond.

Doors open at 5pm and the event starts at 5.30.
