Florence Nightingale 200
To coincide with International Nurses Day, Louise Jordan, local singer songwriter and performer, is making a show to celebrate the bicentenary of Florence Nightingale’s birth and her connections to Salisbury.
Louise has received Arts Council England funding to make the show and in October 2019 she visited Salisbury District Hospital to talk to current and retired nursing staff about their careers. These discussions will inform her songwriting and the show, which will tour in the spring, will include a special day of performances at Salisbury District Hospital. Exact times and locations to be confirmed.
Louise is an award winning artist who has highly respected reputation for research and presentation. Commissioned by UK Parliament, Dreadnought South West, the V&A Museum & Groninger Museum, Louise has worked with such organisations as the National Trust and University of Oxford to share her approach to opening the history books and sharing hidden women’s histories through song.
