Event description

Description

The Royal London Hospital, once an imposing neoclassical building on Whitechapel Road, now lies empty. Produced 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. As we celebrate the birth of the NHS 70 years ago, ‘The Last of The London’ remembers the struggle to provide health care to East Enders in the nineteenth century. See glimpses of the figures, illustrious and ordinary, that haunt its 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.
