Peter Pan - Still a Legend



Peter Pan - Still a Legend

Children's Hospital benefits from Peter Pan royalties

Location: Great Ormond Street, Bloomsbury, WC1N 3JH

Description: The great tale Peter Pan, a play written by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie (1860 - 1937), was first presented on the stage in 1904.

It is a story of a mischievous little boy who refuses to grow up - and - as we all know was set in the area in and around Great Ormond Street, the renowned and dedicated hospital for sick children.

It is this very connection that ensures that the hospital benefits from all royalties generated by the book, play etc...

Peter Pan - what a man (boy)!
