Women of Fitzrovia on International Women’s Day
Thursday 8 March signals International Women’s Day across the world. This year we’re inviting you to the chapel to help us celebrate famous women associated with Fitzrovia.
The audio presentation, held at 13:00 on the day itself, will focus on women including Virginia Woolf, Caitlin Thomas and Florence Nightingale. Woolf lived at 29 Fitzroy Square, a house previously owned by George Bernard Shaw. Caitlin and Dylan Thomas actually met in Fitzrovia and Florence Nightingale spent part of her illustrious career working at the former Middlesex Hospital.
The chapel’s Lineage programme
This International Women’s Day event is part of our Wireless Contemplation and Lineage series. This is an experimental programme aimed at bringing writers, artists and other notable Fitzrovia-related people to a wider audience. They all have strong links with the area, our culture, community and history.
Please come along to the chapel on Thursday 8 March at 13:00. The event is free and you just need to turn up. No ticket is required.
