Reception and Supper Apothecaries' Hall CANCELLED

Wednesday 17th June 2020

Start: 7.30 pm | Finish: 10.30 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale we will be enjoying a summer Reception and Dinner at this wonderful hidden City treasure. The Hall, formerly the guest house of the Dominican Priory of the Black Friars, was acquired in 1632. Destroyed in the Great Fire, it was rebuilt by 1672 on the same site. We will hear all about the life and career of Florence from an actor, by kind permission of The Florence Nightingale Museum, St. Thomas’ Hospital, London, and we will gain an insight into Florence Nightingale’s legacy from our speaker, Col. Jane Davis OBE QVRM TD DL. We are looking forward to an informative and fun evening!

We will enjoy a sparkling reception followed by a splendid three-course dinner with wine. The evening will conclude with the Loving Cup Ceremony, port and speeches.

This event follows our welcoming ceremony for new members, who may wish to continue their celebrations by attending this lovely dinner
