The Last of The London

November 17, 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The former Royal London Hospital was once an imposing neoclassical building on Whitechapel Road. Conceived by historian Nadia Valman and artist Karen Crosby, this event reanimates the hospital with the ghosts of its past, using archive texts and spectacular photographic projections on the building’s facade. In this year of celebrating the 70th birthday of the NHS, ‘The Last of The London’ remembers the struggle to provide health care to those in the East End during the 19th-century. As night falls, see glimpses of the figures, illustrious and ordinary, that haunt the hospital’s corridors; the doctors and nurses from across the globe who worked at The London; the impact of war and epidemic; and the patients whose lives began and ended here.

In partnership with

The Royal London Hospital Archives, London Borough of Tower Hamlets
