The Florence Nightingale museum in South London is now able to teleport the famous nurse into your next Zoom meeting.

Adapted from the popular Meet Miss Nightingale performances normally held at the Museum, the interactive performance-based talk offers an insight into the life and work of the founder of modern nursing in her bicentenary year.

It’s part of the museum’s own response to the pandemic and the collapse in physical visitors to the museum, so they’ve gone digital and projected part of the museum into people’s offices — but also schools and other groups.

Learn about Florence Nightingale’s favourite and most unusual pet, why she ended up working at Scutari Hospital during the Crimean War and her lifetime achievements which still influence us today.

The presentation lasts around 30-40 minutes, for up to 100 people over Zoom.

It’s a highly topical way of bringing remote office workers together for a shared experience.

Price: £120

The Florence Nightingale Museum tells the story of the mother of modern nursing and the people following in her footsteps today, and is now open four days a week – Thursday to Sunday.

Alternatively, you may prefer a cuddly animal — and Stepney Farm will jump into your video meeting for a donation.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I appreciate that it’s a museum and charitable and at full centurion economy of scale is dirt cheap but… methinks the lady’s err candle holder in chief doth [charge] too much.
    Perhaps an in-built donation to NHS charities might sweeten the pill, otherwise it’s in the realms of a business expense.
    Imagine your boss organising a company viewing. You’d be thinking it’s some subtle warning that that bloke who never cleans his cup has infected the firm and you’ll all soon be off to the great lady’s namesake tin sheds.

    Thank you Ian. Don’t forget the point 33 reurring! I did A level maths but if you have 100 like-minded Flo fans, then you’re a better man than I…
    Not allowed to finish that quote nowadays it seems. Cheers
