Nineteenth-century figures such as Florence Nightingale and Charles Dickens were the educators and political influencers of their day.

Join us for a talk by RHN Archivist Katherine Szentgyorgyi on their impact on social reform and, specifically, what inspired them to help the RHN’s cause in its early years.

This event is part of the annual Wandsworth Heritage Festival, and the theme for 2023 is ‘Educating Wandsworth’.
