The Florence Nightingale Foundation has once again been invited to Highclere Castle home of the ITV drama Downton Abbey. The event for all the family will take place on Sunday 3rd August and is a celebration of our Armed Forces, both past and present.
The Florence Nightingale Foundation exhibit “In the Footsteps of Florence Nightingale” at ‘Heroes at Highclere’ will follow the development of nurses and nursing from the Crimean War through the two World Wars and on to the modern day.
We will be working with the Armed Forces and friends of the Foundation where we will have an exhibit of costumes, artifacts, photographs and books. We will also have children’s and casualty makeup.
As part of their display the Armed Forces Nursing Services will be showcasing how they work in times of conflict, with a mobile operating theatre, a field ambulance and displaying uniforms worn by personnel.
Tickets for the event are available from http://www.highclerecastle.co.uk/visiting-us/special-events/13/heroes-at-highclere.Those who work for the NHS or the Armed Forces are also entitled to a discounted entry price.
