THE SICK, POOR AND ABANDONED OF BLOOMSBURY

We start our walk near the site of a medieval leper colony close to where the plague began and during Handel’s lifetime an area known as the Rookery. We trace the footsteps of abandoned children, and learn about the perils of gin drinking and London’s first hospital and home for children. On our way we’ll see the work of Hawksmoor; hear about some Amazing philanthropists and visit the site of the capital’s first flower show for local residents before arriving at the Foundling Museum for tonight’s concert.

JANICE LIVERSEIDGE is a Blue Badge Guide and Director of Communications and Marketing at the Royal Society of Medicine. She is a Handel enthusiast and very knowlegeable about London.
