Meet Miss Nightingale on the day
Performances at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.00pm
Come and meet Miss Nightingale. She'll tell you how she became a nurse against her parents' wishes and how she became known as the 'Lady with the Lamp'. You'll even get to meet her pet owl! Florence Nightingale was as famous as Queen Victoria in her own lifetime and is still celebrated today.
