Date for your diary - Antarctic exhibition at St George's

12th September 2017

Live Arts at St George’s Hospital, along with the Archives of St George’s, University of London are hosting an exhibition of photographs, documents and illustrations relating to St George's alumnus, Edward Adrian Wilson. 

Dr Edward Wilson, who trained at St George’s Hospital, was the Assistant Surgeon and Zoologist on the Discovery Expedition, and Chief Scientist on the Terra Nova. Wilson, along with Captain Scott, perished on the return journey from the South Pole in 1912. Some of the material displayed has never been seen in public before. 

Accompanying the exhibition there will be a talk by David Wilson,  great nephew of Edward Wilson, and other guest speakers, as well as a display of thematic art of the Antarctic.

It takes place on Thursday 23 November at 7pm at St George's Hospital, Monkton Lecture Theatre, Ground Floor, Grosvenor Wing.

Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased via our shop
