The Big Picture - Hetty on show

Monday, May 29, 2017

The Foundling Museum in London has opened a family-friendly exhibition devoted to Hetty Feather – Dame Jacqueline Wilson’s young Victorian heroine

Hetty features in five books, an Olivier Award-nominated stage show and a BAFTA-nominated CBBC television series.

The museum explores the history of the Foundling Hospital, the UK’s first children’s charity and first public art gallery, established in 1739 by the philanthropist Thomas Coram as ‘a hospital for the maintenance and education of exposed and deserted young children’.
