Celebrate the life and times of one of the most illustrious and pioneering members of the Garrett Family, with an exhibition to mark the centenary of her death.

The exhibition will be covering Elizabeth Garrett Anderson's life and works and will be set across the two venues; the Aldeburgh Moot Hall and the Long Shop Museum.
