A special evening to launch the new exhibition Code Name Mary: The Extraordinary Life of Muriel Gardiner, with legendary actress Vanessa Redgrave and Lord Dubs, himself a Kindertransport refugee and now a tireless campaigner for refugee rights.
The two distinguished speakers will reflect on their own experiences, on refugee issues today, and what can be learnt from Muriel Gardiner’s courage in saving hundreds from fascism in 1930s Austria.
This unique event will take place in the home where Sigmund Freud and his family, including his daughter Anna Freud, settled in 1938 after fleeing Nazi oppression in Vienna. It is one of the few museums in the UK that celebrates the life and work of two refugees.
The event will take place in a marquee in Sigmund Freud’s garden. A limited number of in-house tickets are available, which include a post talk drinks reception and the opportunity to view the new exhibition and Freud’s final home.
- We will assume that you are happy to sit next to the people with whom you have bought tickets, without social distancing. You will be safely distanced from other members of the audience. Let us know if this is not correct.
- The performance will take place under cover in the garden. Please wear suitable clothing, and wrap up warm if needed!
- Hygiene precautions are still in place throughout the Museum, and hand sanitiser will be available. We will ask you to put on a face covering when walking round the Museum.
- You will be sent the access details for the recording in the week following the event, which you can access for 30 days.
