Wellcome Library Insight: Water-borne

Show Navigation

By | From the Collections

A new Insight entitled ‘Water-borne’ debuts this week featuring a guest speaker from Wellcome Collection, Will Giller, who is plunging into the often murky waters of London’s famous River Thames. Take a dip into the history of the benefits and hazards it has posed to local inhabitants in this richly illustrated talk.

The talk takes place on Thursday 10th May 3-4pm. Places are limited, free tickets can collected from the Information Desk after 1.30pm on the day.

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

For further details, please follow the links above to the appropriate pages on the Wellcome Collection website.

Hi, I am Danny Rees, an Engagement Officer for the Wellcome Library, one of my interests is the human face; its physiognomy, expressions and ideas about what constitutes beauty. When not at work I enjoy the Kent countryside and consider radio to be one of the best things in life.
