Ragged School Museum and Novo Cemetery – a London Historians event, 22nd October 2019, 2pm

I will be presenting a talk about the wonderful Novo Cemetery, now located on the campus of Queen Mary, University of London, as part of this London Historians double-header.  We’ll visit the cemetery and learn about the Sephardic Jewish community who made their homes in London from the 17th Century onwards.

After visiting the cemetery, the group will visit the Ragged School Museum, housed in one of Dr Barnardo’s ragged schools, for a talk and a tour of the museum.

Tickets cost £15.00 (+£1.76 fee) or £12.00 (+£1.52 fee) for London Historians members and include entry to the Ragged School Museum – ticket link here.
