George Frideric Handel was one of the 18th-century's best-known composers, writing masterpieces like Messiah and the Coronation anthem Zadok the Priest.

Handel was originally born in Germany but had a very successful career in London, befriending the royal family and earning himself a burial in Westminster Abbey.

This special display will showcase some of the Handel-related items held in the museum's collection, shining a light onto his personal life and the people named in his will - including charities such as the Foundling Hospital.
