The first Sunday of each month we offer visitors to the Museum a free talk and concert. This month's talk focuses on our current exhibition Fate, Hope & Charity.

Janette Bright, researcher of Fate, Hope & Charity, unravels the story of an unfortunate woman, whose conviction at the Old Bailey led her son to the Foundling Hospital and her to execution at Tyburn. Margaret Larney's letter of petition to the Foundling Hospital is displayed in the exhibition.
