Florence: the lesser known life and legacy of Florence Nightingale

17 May @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

£10 – £16

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. It celebrates Florence as a ground-breaking statistician, connecting Florence’s work in the 19th century with the issues we continue to face today.

Louise Jordan lives in the New Forest and is a songwriter and performer with ten years’ experience touring the UK & Europe. Self-accompanied on
guitar and keyboard, Louise is a former secondary school teacher with an MA in Human Rights and has released six recordings gaining national radio play on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show & Radio 4.

Please note we don’t offer refunds. NB Booking Fee Applies.
