Free Tonight?

Foundling_Hospital.jpg

The Foundling Hospital in Bloomsbury was demolished in the 1920s, but its work carried on. The institution relocated to Redhill, then Berkhamstead and cared for abandoned children until 1956 when fostering and adoption became the preferred option. Tonight, a panel of former pupils will gather at the Foundling Museum in Brunswick Square to relive their experiences of over 50 years ago. The talk will also highlight work by the Museum to collect an oral history of erstwhile foundlings, followed by a question and answer session with the panel. The event starts at 7pm, Entry is £8, and can be booked in advance.
