Spanish Flu After Hours

Florence Nightingale Museum are holding a special after hours event for their Spanish Flu Exhibition. 

The event will feature a performance by Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company: an extract of their piece, Contagion, which commemorates the pandemic and which has travelled across England, including the Imperial War Museum North and the British Library. It is inspired by the nature and spread of Spanish Flu, the unseen enemy that mankind was battling within, while engaging in more conventional warfare in the world outside.

As well as enjoying the dance performance join Holly, curator at the Florence Nightingale Museum, for an introduction to the Spanish Flu exhibition.

Contagion is co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary.

Tickets are £10 on the night, and early bird tickets will be available at £8.97 for a short period.

Please visit the website for further information.
