Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Jenny Lind



Hospital staff and supporters are today (6 October) celebrating the 200th birthday of the opera star whose generosity founded the region’s first children’s hospital.
Jenny Lind – the Swedish nightingale – was one of the most famous singers of the 19th century who left a lasting legacy to the people of Norfolk when she performed two charity concerts in Norwich in 1849.
