Discover new exhibition ‘Fortitude: healthcare workers’ experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic’ and our fascinating collections after hours.
Join us from 5.30pm to explore the fantastic collections throughout our building including:
- fine art portraits and ceremonial silver
- the fascinating Symons collection of artefacts which would have been used by physicians and for self-care in the home
- the Prujean chest of 17th century surgical instruments
- an extraordinary set of rare 17th-century human remains
There will be specialist curator talks on the current exhibition ‘Fortitude’ at 6pm and 7pm.
In 2021 we began collecting the experiences of healthcare professionals working in the COVID-19 pandemic. With their permission, the RCP is privileged to share their experiences, in their own words.
Please be aware this exhibition contains images, descriptions and audio recordings relating to illness, death, grief and trauma.
Plus drop in to the brand new ‘Craft café’ as part of your evening to take part in activities inspired by the craft-making activities that provided solace for healthcare workers and many others during the pandemic.
The Regent’s Perk café will also be open for refreshments.
