Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Charles Dickens like you might not know them


We’re teaming up with the Association of Anaesthetists and Dickens Museum to bring you stories of toxic tunnels, workers’ rights and public health in Victorian London!


Gill Howard and Keith Turpin from the Brunel Museum will investigate the interwoven connections between great advances in engineering and science and the medical challenges of this pandemic-stricken period in London, while the Charles Dickens Museum’s Senior Curator Frankie Kubicki  will explore how Dickens used his voice, and pen, to call for action.


Tickets:  £10 (£7.50 for concessions)

Location: Association of Anaesthetists, 21 Portland Place London, W1B 1PY


Please note this event is not taking place at the Brunel Museum. If you’d like the Brunel Museum to visit your venue or event, please get in touch.
