Family Fanoos Competition

August 13th marks 110 years since the death of Florence Nightingale. 2020 has been a difficult year but even after her death Florence’s light is still shining brightly. Help us celebrate the founder of modern nursing’s legacy by redesigning her Fanoos lamp.

Take part in our “Design Florence’s Fanoos” competition and be in with the chance of winning a prize from our gift shop! Please post your entries to Florence Nightingale Museum, 2 Lambeth Palace Road, London, SE1 7EW or email them to

The closing date is the 30/09/2020 and three winners will be chosen on the 01/10/2020. We’d love to see you visit us to collect your prize and you can also meet Florence herself!  If you’re unable to make it to the Museum, we can post your prize to you.
