People who have saved this event:


This summer the Foundling Museum presents a new family-friendly exhibition exploring how Dame Jacqueline Wilson’s much-loved character Hetty Feather has brought the history of London’s Foundling Hospital to life.


Created by Wilson in 2008 during her Fellowship at the Museum, spirited Victorian foundling Hetty Feather has delighted young audiences with her adventures across five books, a stage show and a CBBC series. This immersive exhibition will explore the creative ways in which curators, writers, directors and designers have used historical evidence and factual gaps to interpret life at the Foundling Hospital, inviting visitors to picture the institution through television scenery, costumes, rarely-seen archival items and interactive activities.
