Lichfield Library event to explore historical health

An examination of health and hypochondria in Jane Austen’s England will form the focus of an event at Lichfield Library.

Taking place at 7.30pm on November 14, Oh My Poor Nerves will take a unique exploration into the past.

“This will be a fascinating insight into maladies real and imaginary, with a splendid selection of medical artefacts and a very spirited invalid,” a spokesperson said.

Tickets are £3 and must be purchased in advance by calling 01543 510700 or emailing
