Florence Nightingale is known throughout the world for the foundation of good nursing practice.  During her two years at Scutari in Turkey nursing diseased soldiers from the Crimean war she became known as ‘The Lady with the Lamp’.  Yet, supported by her cousin, Henry Bonham Carter, she worked for another twenty years on public health reform.  She died in 1910 at the age of 90 and is buried in the family grave in East Wellow near Romsey.

Chester House Productions have been regular participants in the Festival for many years.  The double-act bring their own inimitable style to this popular classic.

This production, described by audience members as ‘gripping’, ‘masterly’ and ‘very enjoyable and skilful’, is sponsored by Hampshire County Council.
