This week’s free Wellcome Library Insight session – on Thursday 21st October – focuses on our founder, Henry Wellcome.

Who was Wellcome and what drove him to collect over a million objects during his lifetime? We will examine his personal life and business career through material preserved in the Wellcome Library.

Our Insight sessions offer visitors to the Wellcome Library an opportunity to explore the variety of our holdings. Sessions are thematic in style, last around an hour and offer a chance to learn about our collections.

This Thursday’s session starts at 3pm, and tickets are available from the Wellcome Collection Information Desk from 1.30pm onwards. For more details, see the Wellcome Collection website.
