Celebrate Normansfield at Hampton Wick Library

Celebrate Normansfield at Hampton Wick Library

The Friends are proud to present a brand new exhibition about Normansfield, the pioneering Victorian-era mental asylum in Hampton Wick that helped change forever the perception and care of people with learning disabilities.

The centre-piece of this exhibition is a talk at 7:30pm on 20th September in Bullen Hall by Ian Jones-Healey, the Archivist of the Langdon Down Museum.

This will be preceded by a reception in the Library (6:30pm) which will be an opportunity to view the exhibition and meet other Friends.
