Florence performanceFlorence 200
Coinciding with International Nurses Day on 12th May 2020, will be a show devised by Louise Jordan, a local singer songwriter and performer, celebrating 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, as well as the historic collections here at Salisbury Hospital and Wiltshire Council’s archives held at Chippenham, will inform Louise’s songwriting and the show. The final show, touring in the spring, will include a special day of performances at Salisbury District Hospital. Find out more about Louise Jordan her on her website.
