Medical Tour of Fitzrovia - Saturday
The historical area of Fitzrovia, London, has a rich medical past and fascinating stories attached to its former hospitals and workhouse.
This walk starts outside Warren Street Underground Station. It explores the medical associations of the Fitzrovia area, including the first private hospital in London, a number of smaller hospitals that occupied grand houses in Fitzroy Square, the story of the birth of family planning, a major nurses home established by the famous Astor family, a Georgian workhouse known by Charles Dickens, and ending with a short tour inside the beautiful Fitzrovia Chapel which was part of the famous Middlesex Hospital.
An exhibition of experimental new artworks by students from the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, created in response to the Grant Museum of Zoology's collection of weird and wonderful animal specimens. Sculpture students have been invited to place works among the museum’s own objects, take over entire cabinets or use other voids and spaces in the building. These new works sit alongside historic skeletons, skulls and specimens preserved in jars to transform the historic zoological museum.
