Take Me To Neverland

Peter Pan From Play to Book and Beyond

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

When author J M Barrie gifted the rights of Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital, he bestowed one of the most generous bequests ever given to a hospital.

This resulted in the hospital receiving royalties from every adaptation or production of Peter Pan ever staged.

The result of a partnership between Great Ormond Street and the Florence Nightingale Museum, this exhibition showcases a number of artefacts never seen before in public.

The exhibition includes early editions with classic illustrations of the story including works by Mabel Lucie Attwell and Arthur Rackham, and Peter Pan's Postbag, a collection of children's letters sent to Peter Pan from 1906-14.

Also on display is the original bell that was used as the "voice" of Tinker Bell in the 1904 play and a selection of Peter Pan memorabilia never before displayed in public.
